Γεια σου Νικόλαε,


Thank you for bringing this issue to our attention. I have forwarded the issue to the content team for review.

I apologise for the inconvenience.


The sentence "Μπορώ να έχω ένα σαπούνι;" translates more naturally in English as "Can I have some soap?". The literal meaning is "Can I have a/one soap (bar)?"


Also there is an equivalent for "more" in Greek. That would be "κι άλλον / κι άλλη / κι άλλο" (meaning clser to "one more") or "περισσότερος/-η/-ο" or "πιο πολύ."


So if you wanted to say "Can I have some more soap?", the most natural way would be "Μπορώ να έχω κι άλλο σαπούνι;"


Please let us know if you ever have any questions or if you are not sure about something. We are here to help.


Kind regards,


Stefania

How does " Μπορώ να έχω ένα σαπούνι;" mean "Can I have more soap" where in my opinion it should mean "Can I have one soap", is there no equivalent for "more" in Greek?

Unfortunately there is a mismatch concerning the first statement between audio and text.

By the way I think the most popular question nowadays is "Do you have Internet?"
