Cultural Insight
Eric: Now it's time for a quick cultural insight.
Chrissi: Before, we saw the word σινεμά meaning "cinema." This is not a native Greek word, but in Greek there is a proper, native word for "cinema" and that's κινηματογράφος. In everyday situations, people would usually use σινεμά for their conversations, but in magazines or wherever the language needs to be more proper or formal, the word κινηματογράφος is used.

Chrissi: Γεια χαρά!
