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 Ελένη,


Vegetarian = χορτοφάγος (masculine and female)

Vegan = αυστηρά χορτοφάγος (masculine and female)


Luckily for you Greek food has a lot of vegan options. I'm glad you like it!:smile:


Cheers,
