Anyone else out there learning Greek?
Anyone learning greek? Or any greeks wanting to learn English? I haven't come across anyone else studying greek yet!
Enjoy your trip. If you want to impress Cretans, learn a few Cretan words and drop them into your conversations. κατέω is a useful and very common one; use that in place of ξέρω and/or καταλαβαίνω. ίντα instead of τι, and γιάντα instead of γιατί are also good to know. Not even all mainlanders know these words, so you'll have Cretans wondering where on earth you picked them up :-)
Hi Aime I have the same problems myself reading, listening and writing is more important to me in the early stages of learning a new language I hope later I will have the confidence and ability to speak it before too long but for now it is not high on my list as I try to understand the words and phrases more.
