Lesson Transcript

Hi! My name is Eleni, and we will do the Greek weekly words today. So, let’s see what is the word of this week, “fruits” φρούτα (froúta).
So, the first word is…
1. ανανάς (ananás) “pineapple”
We don’t have a lot of pineapples in Greece, but we had different kinds of fruits, actually. We had a lot of “grapes”, so σταφύλια (stafília); we have a lot of “oranges” πορτοκάλια (portokália); we had a lot of “mandarins”, so μανταρίνια (mandarínia); pear, a lot of “pears”, so, αχλάδια (ahládia).
Δεν έχουμε καθόλου ανανάδες στην Ελλάδα. (Den éhume kathólu ananádes stin Eláda.) “We don't have at all pineapples in Greece.”
2. πεπόνι (pepóni) “melon”
We love melon in Greece and we eat it very much during summer because it’s very fresh.
Να σου κόψω λίγο πεπόνι για να δροσιστείς; (Na su kópso lígo pepóni ya na drosistís?) “Do you want me to give you some melon to refresh yourself?”
3. μήλο (mílo) “apple”
Ένα μήλο την ημέρα τον γιατρό τον κάνει πέρα. (Éna mílo tin iméra ton yatró ton káni péra.) “An apple a day keeps the doctor away.”
4. φράουλα (fráula) “strawberry”
Μ' αρέσουν πάρα πολύ οι φράουλες. (M' arésun pára polí i fráules) “I love strawberries.”
Μ' αρέσουν πάρα πολύ τα μιλκσέικ με γεύση φράουλα. (M' arésun pára polí ta milkséik me yéfsi fráula.) “I love very much strawberry milkshakes.”
5. πορτοκάλι (portokáli) “orange”
So, in Greece, we are using a lot of the orange peel, and we use it to make some cakes.
Χρησιμοποίησα τη φλούδα του πορτοκαλιού για να δώσω άρωμα στο κέικ. (Hrisimopíisa ti flúda tu portokaliú ya na dóso ároma sto kéik.) “I used orange’s peel to give a particular aroma to my cake.”

Hi Hiro,


I'm glad you understand the difference between the momentary and the continuous subjunctive😄! I'm extra happy to see your linguistic feel for Greek actually gets some sort of satisfaction from this rather than frustration. Many students do get frustrated with the subjunctive in general.


What's your native language. Your name seems to be Japanese to me. Am I right?


Best regards,


Stefania

Μπορείς να αγοράζεις φράουλες όλο τον χρόνο, αλλά έχουν καλύτερη γεύση το καλοκαίρι


αγοράζεις vs αγοράσεις

How nice Greek Language!

We use αγοράζεις in this case, it is because the time aspect is imperfective by all year round.

But maybe, the aorist would be used in different situation...

How accurate Greek is!
