Plesses Palace Hotel Learn Greek

The Greek Language is one that is not very easy to learn. With it's own alphabet, and the fact that many words can be broken down or changed to change meaning, it can be quite difficult at the beginning to understand.

However, one thing that the Greek really appreciate is when visitors make an attempt to speak the language. Though you may make mistakes with words or pronunciation, the Greeks should still be able to get the meaning of what you are tryng to say. They may answer back in English, as often happens, but the fact that you attempted to speak Greek will be something that they will all appreciate and respect.

Below we have compiled a section of useful phrases and words that you may use during your holidays in Greece. The English is on the left, with the Greek on thr right (not in fact Greek, but the way to say specific phrases in greek with English letters used for spelling to make them easier to understand.) The stress of the word is where you see the BOLD letter/s.

Some Notes:
For ease of use with the phrases and words below, please note the following....
The pronunciation of, for example, gia is "Yia". The letter "G" has the sound of the letter "Y".
The pronunciation of, for example, dromos is "Thromos". The letter "D" (Delta) has the sound of the letters "TH" (such as there, mother )
