Lesson Transcript

INTRODUCTION
Jason:In each lesson of this 25 part series, you'll master a common question for Greek learners, and then learn how to answer it like a native. You'll learn how these key phrases work by breaking them down into each component. Then through repetition and new vocabulary, you'll expand your understanding of the question, its answers, and any variations.

Γεια σου Γιολάντ,


είμαι καλά, σε ευχαριστώ. Κι εσύ;


Τι μεγάλη οικογένεια που έχεις! Και τι ψηλή που είσαι επίσης!


The accusative would be: εννιά αδερφούς, τρεις αδερφές, τρεις κουνιάδους, εννιά συννυφάδες, δεν έχω σύζυγο.

Also you don't need το here: Όχι, δεν έχω κινητό τηλέφωνο.


Μπράβο σου που ήξερες ότι πρέπει να χρησιμοποιήσεις αιτιατική (accusative):smile:.


Συνέχισε έτσι!

Καλημέρα Στεφανια,

Πως έιστε;

Έχω εννιά αδελφοί και τρια αδελθές, τρία κουνιάδοι και εννια συννυφάδες αλλά δεν έχω σύζυγος.

Είμαι η πρωτότοκη, η γεροντοκόρη, η γριά άγαμη θεία.

Έχω ύψος εκατόν ογδόντα εκατοστά.

Όχι, δεν έχω το κινητό τηλέφωνο.

Συγγνώμη, I don't know the accusative plural form for αδελφοί, αδελφές, κουνιάδοι, etc.

Ευχαριστώ πάρα πολύ.

Γεια σας

Γιολαντ
