The weather

Language

Every one of us speaks a little Greek. In English, it is even impossible to spend one day without using at least one word of Greek origin. Architect, astronaut, acrobat. Base, bible, biology. Centre, chaos, comedy. There are over 150.000 English words that originate from the Ancient Greek language.

But don’t trust too much on your English when you hear some real Greeks talking. We all might know some Greek, but the actual Greek language is far from easy!

So keep reading, get in your rental car, put your fears aside, start driving in Greece, and enjoy!
