Similarities between Spanish and Greek

For all of you feeling confused or overwhelmed with the Greek pronunciation there is a video explaining how and why Greek sounds (and hence is pronounced) a lot like Spanish.

So if you already speak Spanish or think Spanish pronunciation is not difficult, then Greek pronunciation should not be difficult either.

European Spanish in particular is very similar-sounding to Greek. I’ve also heard someone say “Greek is like Italian but harder”. Having studied all three to various levels, I’m inclined to agree that Greek is vary similar to Spanish and Italian. (Despite not being a Romance language).
