My grandmother Athena Kotsiopoulos taught Greek for most of her life. This website is a work in progress and is dedicated to her.

The Greek alphabet has 24 letters:

Here are all the lower-case letters in a row as if they were written on a line in a notebook:

All the upper-case letters sit on top of the line:
