A Few Words in Greek

The Greek language is believed to be one of the oldest European languages, which has an oral tradition of 4000 years and a written tradition of approximately 3000 years. Works that will never become outdated have been expressed through this language. All Arts and Sciences were born and developed using it. Written texts in Mathematics, Physics, Astronomy, Law, Medicine, History, Politics, Ethics, Gastronomy, etc were written in this language thousands of years ago. All ancient literature, tragedies and comedies, Homer's epic works, the New Testament, the Byzantine and modern Greek literature. The first encyclopedia was written in Greek.


Nothing makes your travels easier than knowing a few words in the local language. In Greece, even a few words will warm your welcome and may even inspire a lasting friendship. Some words you will see repeated: "odos" means "street" and where you find (not often) a street name sign you'll know what it means. Villages rarely have signs displaying street names. «Ανοιχτό» - "Anikto" means - Open. «Κλειστό» - "Klisto" meaning - Closed. "Eisodos" means - Entrance. "Exodos" is - Exit Now a short vocabulary: English / Greek Excuse me : Signomi Thank you : Efharisto (if you are several people - being served in a restaurant or cafe: We thank you (is better) Efharistoomay Good morning / good day (until about 13.00 or so!) : Kalimera Good Afternoon or Good evening : Kalispera Good night Kalinihxta See you / Hello / Hi : Yassas (if to one person or a stranger or older person. "Yassoo" is usually used for those you know or people much younger than you - but you will also find both used freely - don't worry, either will be appreciated!) How much is this? : Posso Kani Afto? How far is it? : Posso makria ine? Excuse me, where is....... : Signomi, pou ine.......? One room for (five) nights. : Ena domatio ya (pende) vradia Can we see a menu: Boroume na doume ena menu Can we pay the bill? : Boroume na plirosoume? Do you speak..... : Milate......? English: Ag-glika ? German : Yermanika ? Italian “Italika”? Sorry, I don't speak Greek. : Signomi, then milo ellinika This one : Afto That one : Ekino

Smile wider - this will completely compensate for any mistakes you may make.
