Kalimera Maria Alexa :) Have a pleasant stay in Greece! I love this country, a lot :)
Γεια σου Μαρία - Αλέξα! Hello Θα ήθελα να σε βοηθήσω να μιλάς Ελληνικά αλλά δεν ξέρω πως. I would like to help you to speak Greek but I don't know how. Είμαι φυσική ομιλήτρια της ελληνικής γλώσσας και ζω στην Ελλάδα. I am native speaker of greek language and I live in Greece.
Kalimera Maria-Alexa, (Καλημέρα Μαρία-Αλέξα) I am native of Cyprus now living in the USA and would be glad to help. Unfortunately I did not do a very good job with my own children practicing their Greek after Greek School at the Church was over and they are in a similar situation as you. If you are stuck on something and need help, feel free to ask :)

I'd love to! I took a few hours of ancient greek at college, however, I'd be starting from zero here. Idk if that'd still work for you...
Hi Alexa, I used to travel a lot around Greece years ago and I really love to go there again. I started learning some greek here, but it´s really tough, because of the other alphabet. Good luck for your plans! Stef
Ánimo maria_alexa27, Te sorprenderá darte cuenta que recuerdas mas griego del que crees y que lo aprendes mas rapido de lo que pensabas que ibas a hacerlo. You will be surprised to know that you remember more Greek than you think and that you learn it at a speed that is out of the ordinary. They are the roots, they are there ...
Since you're from northern Greece, make sure to call it souvlaki, not kalamaki!
