Re: Greek anyone?

I am considering taking Greek classes, and am curious about the differences or similarities between different varieties (or is "dialects" the better word?). For instance, if I studied modern Greek, how well would I be able to understand Classical texts, and if I studied Classical Greek, how well would I be able to communicate with Greek people today? Are Classical and Koine Greek mutually comprehensible or are they very different?
