Greek Alphabet

This tutorial introduces the letters in an order that makes sense for learning the alphabet, which is not necessarily the same as alphabetical order. After all, order isn't necessary for most elementary conversation. When was the last time someone asked you to sing the alphabet song in a business meeting or at a social gathering?

If you're serious about Greek, though, you'll eventually buy a dictionary and will find alphabetical order useful when looking up words.

Below you see the alphabet in order. The first and third rows are the capital letters; the second and fourth show the small letters.

Note: the lower case letter changes its form to when it is at the end of a word.

On the next page, you get to sort the letters into their proper order.
