Amazing Lesson

This was my first lesson with Vicki and I thought that she was super sweet and patient with me. During this lesson I learned introductory Modern Greek which included: the alphabet and pronunciation for simple Modern Greek words. Vicki sure does a thorough preparation for our first lesson together. I look forward to working with her in the future!
