How to Greek#2: Some visual education!

Where you want to or not, you will know this track. It is so classic! Zorba’s Dance from the film Zorba the Greek starring Anthony Quinn


So, lets start off with the very basics – for those of you who dont know:

Hi! How are you? >> Geia sou! Ti kaneis?

I learnt a new phrase last night. albeit completely random, i think it’s cute!

Simera einai mia fantastiki imera>>Today is a fantastic day.

Going forward, I will bring in some sort of structure: every week I will kind of theme my phrases, else it will all be quite random. I need to give this week’s some thought. Watch this space!


Geia sas!

Finally. I. Am. Here.

It has been an intense and daunting period trying to figure this all out but – I have arrived.

For a long time I have been trying to learn more Greek. To give you some context: My partner is Greek and I think of my kids as Greek> And ultimately, I want to give them an opportunity to learn from me too. At the same time, I have been trying to learn more Greek formally and it has been dismal – so this is my new adventure. Its more of a journey really. One of patience, dilligence and discovery.

Every day I will endeavor to learn a new phrase/sentence/word and share it. my intention exceeds personal gain. I know I am not the only one with a mission to learn Greek so I want to share this with you. If you would like to add a phrase, please feel free. If you would like to learn something in particular, I will make it my business to find out.

Here’s to daily updates!
