Impress your mate! Amaze your friends! Better yet, learn to use basic greetings and polite expressions to make the most out of your stay in Greece. It's no use muttering “it's all Greek to me” because, of course, it IS all Greek.
We wrote this book not so much for travellers and new residents in Greece to learn to speak Greek but rather how to use polite greetings in everyday situations. We won't tell you the correct way to order a souvlaki without onions or an ouzo on ice but we do tell you how to say thank you, it was delicious. We won't explain how to ask for an extra towel for your room but we do tell you how to say please and have a pleasant afternoon. And many many more common greetings and simple yet polite expressions to use … from Good Morning to Good Night and from Happy New Year to Merry Christmas, and almost everything in between. Plus greetings for children, for ladies who are pregnant or recently given birth, wishes for the sick or unwell, farewell to someone leaving on a trip, and more.
