Έχω κλείσει ένα δωμάτιο.

Who knows what does that mean?

Hi Evan,


"Would" is a modal verb in English. In Greek, we don't have modal verbs. Instead, we use other formations to express modality such as θα (a particle used in future tenses) + verb in the past tense which is actually a form of conditional in Greek ("I would like a room"... implying "if you have one").


Θα ήθελα ένα δωμάτιο = I would've liked a room.

Θέλω ένα δωμάτιο = I want a room. (indicative mood, expresses a fact/certainty)


For more info on modality, check out the following lessons:

I've noticed throughout the lessons that the present and past tense are being confused. Example - Θα ήθελα ένα δωμάτιο really means I would've liked a room. Shouldn't I would like a room be Θέλω ένα δωμάτιο? Thanks.
