Hello everyone and welcome to another video and one of the most important videos of greekpod101.com, today, we will talk about the 25 most popular phrases that we use in Greek. So pay careful attention because you’re going to need them.
1. Γεια. (Ya.) "Hello."
2. Καλημέρα. (Kaliméra) "Good morning."
Good morning Greece.
3. Καλησπέρα. (Kalispéra) "Good afternoon."
Good morning is from 6 A.M. to 12 P.M. From 12:00 until the sunset is Καλησπέρα (Kalispéra) and from the sunset and after, it’s Καληνύχτα (Kaliníhta).
But you are not saying to someone goodnight when you meet him. You tell him when you’re leaving. Okay. Easy or confusing?
4. Καλησπέρα. (Kalispéra) "Have a good evening." Or “Have a goodnight.”
5. Πώς σε λένε; (Pós se léne?) "What's your name?"
“Yes, you in the corner, what’s your name?”

I am, I’m, and your name.
Με λένε Εμμανουήλ. (Me léne Emanuíl.) “I am Emmanouil.”

11. Ευχαριστώ. (Efharistó.) "Thank you."
12. Ναι. (Ne.) "Yes."
“You will give me the car.”
13. Όχι. (Óhi.) "No."
