        Not a problem. I won't be doing this Greek writing anymore..It boggles the mind..

          That is true - I read and speak Greek a little better.

          Mind you, I have been sat indoors for the past few months, finishing off a few projects, so I am very out of practice. Hopefully, it will come back once I get out and about.

          It is a very difficult language neutral

            I read it better..Speak/understand it spoken..the best.

            Translate and write it last and least.
            At least we didn't write it in the Greek alphabet...

            I have a hard time with dialect too.

                Think hard now..it's coming back to you.

                Here is an easy one:

                What is the Greek word for WATER.

                  You know I tried to remember for about 10 minutes but could not think of the word so I looked it up and found hudor...

              I actually find it easier to read and write Greek using the Greek alphabet, although it is still difficult.

              mtsi: I am sure that it would all come back if you stayed here a while. I have a lot of Australian and Canadian Greek friends who soon relearned it smile

                I use to. I studied a little a long time ago but I am very rusty in it. I grew up with Greeks around me and learned by just listening and observing.
                I don't have a way to type Greek either.

                I speak as much Hebrew as I do Greek.

                  My knowledge of Hebrew is non-existent!

                  I also learn from listening. I did teach myself a little from books, but the Spartans speak a completely different dialect.

                  As my Greek friend is fond of saying: Even the Greeks don't speak Greek.

                  I have a Greek keyboard on my notebook, but not this laptop, which I brought over from England smile
