Cultural Insight
Eric: Now it's time for a quick cultural insight.
Chrissi: The reason we have included the option without the words ευρώ (evró), λεπτό (leptó) or λεπτά (leptá) in the last example, is because in Greece, a lot of people that work in shops and restaurants do that. The same goes for the price tags - usually there is a euro sign before or after a price, but just as often you see tags with just numbers and no euro sign.

Outro

Eric: And that’s all for this lesson. Don’t forget to check out the lesson notes, and we’ll see you in the next lesson!
Chrissi: Γεια χαρά!
