How does the grammar here work? Is it a normal future construction? Why do I get several sentences with "will" before any "Future" skill? I don't even know what this "θα" is.

Θα is the Greek "will". But the sentence above is wrong. Θα + normal present conjunction results in future continuous so the English translation should be "we will be stopping"

Is greek really that sophisticated in practice? I think I keep hearing the θα construction, just meaning the simple future.

Future simple also has θα. But it is θα σταματήσουμε not θα σταματάμε.

My native language is not english. So i want to know this right. ''Εμείς θα σταματάμε.'' = we will be stoping .... and ''Εμείς θα σταματήσουμε.'' = we will stop. İs it correct?

Sorry , but the audio is bad on this one. On the listening exercise I heard "Εμείς δε σταματάμε"

It sounds ok at normal speed, but it sounds like something between "θα" and "δε" at slow speed. We'll note it down and see whether it can be fixed at some point.

Is there a reason why 'they will stop, doesn't work?
