"Who is your professor?"
Μετάφραση:Ποιος είναι ο καθηγητής σου;
Γιατί είναι "Ποιος είναι ο δάσκαλος σου" λάθος;
I speak english and I am learning greek...
"Δάσκαλος" and its female form "δασκάλα" mean "teacher". They are usually used to describe a person teaching at a primary school. However, you can always combine them with a subject at genitive case and have for example "ο δάσκαλος του χορού" (= the dance teacher) or "η δασκάλα των αγγλικών" (= the English teacher).
"Καθηγητής" and its female form "καθηγήτρια" mean "teacher" or "professor", but they are used to describe someone teaching at a high school or at a university. You can also combine them with a subject at genitive case. For example "ο καθηγητής αγγλικών" (= the English teacher) or "η καθηγήτρια γαλλικών" (= the French teacher).
Also, keep in mind that there are special words to describe a teacher according to the subject that he/she teaches, but they are mostly used when speaking about high school. Here are some:
- ο/η φιλόλογος = the literature/Greek/history teacher
- ο/η μαθηματικός = the maths teacher
- ο/η θεολόγος = the religious education teacher
- ο γυμναστής/ η γυμνάστρια = the PE teacher
- ο/η φυσικός = the physics teacher
- ο/η χημικός = the chemistry teacher
I hope that this helps. :-)
