    Is the termination αστε for female verbs?

    Verbs are not characterised by grammatical gender. Only past participles that look like adjectives have gendered endings, e.g. tired - κουρασμένος, -ένη, -ένο, hungry - πεινασμένος, -ένη, -ένο.


    Where do I find the explanation of είμαστε? I don't see it in the Tips and Notes of this lesson

    It's in the Tips & notes for Basic 1. Here it is for your convenience:

    Examples: To BE

    (Εγώ) είμαι = I am

    (Εσύ) είσαι = you are (singular)

    (Αυτός, αυτή, αυτό) είναι = he, she or it is

    (Εμείς) είμαστε = we are

    (Εσείς) είσαστε = you are(plural) (or είστε)

    (Αυτοί, αυτές, αυτά) είναι =they are

    Important note: the pronoun (Εγώ, εσύ ...is not always needed.)


    Thank you, this is very helpful... how do I find it on the phone app?


    In the android app, at least, they don't have the tips and notes for Greek, or for other language courses except for the "biggest" ones (French and Spanish, that I've seen). That's one of the reasons I rarely use the app anymore- in my opinion the web browser version is much better anyway.


    Thank you, that was helpful.
