Holidays in Greece

I am flying to the Greek island of Rhodes on Sunday. I shall try and use the Greek words I have learnt thanks to Duolingo and others.

Πετάω την Κυριακή στο νησί της Ρόδου. Θα προσπαθήσω να χρησιμοποιήσω τις ελληνικές λέξεις που έμαθα χάρη στον Duolingo και άλλους.

Καλώς να ορίσεις στην Ρόδο της Ελλάδας! Σου δίνω 10 lingots για να παγώσεις για μία μέρα το σερί σου! Welcome in Rhodes of Greece! I give you 10 lingots to freeze your streak for one day


On a different thread, someone translated the word lingot to Greek: γλώσμημα. Clever, no?


Interesting. :) I think γλώμισμα would work too, (from νόμισμα).


I think they were working from κόσμημα, which of course means gem. :·).

But yeah, they both work!


I finished my Greek lesson on Duolingo when I was visiting Athens for work. I love this language.


Hi Jean-Chris! Enjoy your stay in Rhodes!

Don't forget to visit: 1) Old Town and The Palace of the Grand Master, 2) Petaloudes Valley, 3) Lindos sunset, 4) Prasonisi beach, 5) fish restaurants in Mandraki, 6) sunbathing at the beach in front of the Casino, 7) Anthony Quinn Bay, 8) Kallithea Springs, 9) Mount Filerimos, 10) The Ancient City of Kamiros {and 11) nightlife in Faliraki} !!! :-)


Incredible, wish you all the best, have fun!

Just wanted to say, I would probably say χάρη στο/του Duolingo, rather than στον, because otherwise it would suggest that Duolingo is a masculine person, rather than an object.


Actually, saying "χάρη στο Duolingo" would be more correct


Καλές διακοπές! Η Ρόδος είναι πανέμορφη. Σίγουρα θα μάθεις πολύ περισσότερες λέξεις όσο θα είσαι εκεί. Γράψε μας όταν γυρίσεις να μας πεις πώς ήταν.


Gongratulations! Have a nice time in Rhodes! Συγχαρητήρια! Να περάσεις ωραία στη Ρόδο!
