Hi elizazj,


Greek is a highly inflected language, so declinable words, such as articles, change depending on their usage, just like "he" becomes "him" in English.

Here the article η in nominative (denoting subject of a verb) has changed to "την" in accusative because τουαλέτα is the object of the verb and not the subject.


I hope this is clear. Let me know if you have more questions.


Regards,


Stefania

Μπορώ να δανειστώ την τουαλέτα σας;


In this sentence, why the article becomes "την"?

Hi George,


I'm glad you shared this with me.


Although the idea of this is great, I'm afraid quite many of the letters are not in the right order when it comes to keyboards, so I would strongly advise against using this particular tool as it won't really help you type on a real keyboard. It will probably further confuse you and cause frustration.


Google's translate page has the same feature and the keyboard has all the letters in order:

https://screencast.com/t/QQOmSqHd

It will behave just like a regular keyboard if you press Shift to get the extra characters.


However, while all this is convenient and great, I do believe that typing like this should be avoided, as you are not training your hands, fingers and eye coordination to type Greek on any keyboard, you are just clicking here and there on a screen.


We have a typing guide which I suggest you print and hang on the wall next to your computer screen to help you start doing some real Greek typing training. Here it is:

Alternatively, there are also some transparent keyboard stickers with the Greek letters that you can order online and stick them over your keyboard keys. Or you can just get some sort of permanent marker and draw them over transparent sticker and then stick them over your keyboard. By the time the ink fades you'll have learned where the letters are. It sounds daunting but most letters coincide with the English keyboard, so it's not that hard to learn the location of a few tricky ones. For example α will always be on A and μ on M and so on. I think it's a matter of practising with a Greek keyboard for a few minutes to familiarise yourself with how it works. I feel it will be much faster that clicking on a screen and then copying and pasting.


If you really want to learn how to type in Greek, I suggest you use one of the method described above and always use a real keyboard to type, not a virtual one. Smart phones and devices actually could also help you. Once the Greek keyboard is installed, you can type Greek very easily. It's a great way to familiarise yourself with the layout because there won't be any English letters on the screen ;)


I hope this helps!


Kind regards,


Stefania

Hi Stefania, I found this link that lets you type in Greek and then you can cut and paste. I find it easy to use as I don't type much Greek as yet. http://greek.typeit.org/

HI

You keep sending me emails that offer free lessons. Today's offering reads as follows:


"Today's Free GreekPod101 lesson is: 'Survival Phrases Season 1 #6 - Must-Know Greek: Where is the Bathroom?'


Instantly access it now..."


Click here to access the lesson for FREE!!""


When I follow the link, all I can do is access a locked lesson page, and a further page inviting me to sign up for a paid subscription. This appears to constitute false representation of what you are offering, and does not make for good customer relations. If there is a way to access the free lesson, can you please confirm how? Thank you

Hi Vi,


Thank you for leaving us a comment.


First of all, in order to start typing in Greek you need to have the Greek language installed on your computer or device operating system. This is very easy to do as long as you follow the following instructions:

It takes a while to get to know where some of the weird Greek letters are located on your keyboard but eventually you will get used to. If you can’t find a Greek layout keyboard in your area or buy it through the internet, you can either print tiny letters on a transparent sticker and stick them on your keyboard if it’s a light colour or you can use white correcting fluid to draw them on a black keyboard.


As for the alphabet itself, we have a writing series which teaches you how to write in Greek. I think watching the series and printing out the image I provided above with the keyboard layout, will help you greatly with your typing skills as well. Here's the series:
