If you are using IOS go to settings, then General, keyboards and add the Greek alphabet. Android, go to settings, general, language and keyboard then select your language! Mac, go to system preferences, keyboard and then input sources to switch to greek( all of these keyboards are easily reversible) :0

Chromebooks, click on the panel at the lower right. Then, go to settings -> advanced settings -> languages and input settings -> add -> and then add Greek, and click the corresponding keyboard button. =)

I haven't done much with Catalan or Italian just yet, but I think of it as different "sections" of my brain. I kinda turn on one when I'm working on one. Sometimes, there's some bleed-over, but that's bound to happen. My biggest problem is speaking Dutch in Spanish class. =P

Nope! You have the ability to switch between the languages at any time by going back down to the bottom right and clicking the keyboard button. It is in the first menu. =)

You're not wasting my time. =) And I have seven keyboards active at times, depending on what I'm doing, and have my computer in a different language. You won't get in trouble. =) The first panel is at the bottom right of your screen. It has your profile picture/time etc. Click settings. Then, scroll to the bottom and click "Advanced settings". Scroll mostly to the bottom; the button you will need is right above the "Downloads" heading. Click that button and a dialogue box will come up. Hit "add" in the bottom left corner and select Greek. Then, just click "add". Finally, look to the right of the dialogue and click the box to add the Greek keyboard to your device. =)

Waaaait. I just realized what the problem might be. Do you use an Acer Chromebook, or (I think this is the other Chromebook manufacturer) Samsung?
