Week Two of Learning! (Conversational)

Γεια σας,  (Hello, ya-sas)

Just a reminder when seeing each other around campus try out some of the words you know, like hello and how are you? That way you feel comfortable using the language.

Review!
kalimera = good morning - καλημέρα. Used both when coming to and going away from a place.

kalispera = good afternoon - καλησπέρα. Used only when coming to a place or meeting someone in the evening or at night.

kalinihta = good night - καληνύχτα. Used only as a goodbye greeting in the evening or at night.

This week's Lesson:
We watched a Greek 101 Common words and Phrases - Level 1 on youtube, I have attached the link.  Please watch this a couple of times to get some of the words down.
