POST CONVERSATION BANTER
Judith: Alright, maybe this lesson is a good point to talk about money in Greece. For example, should I bring a lot of cash with me when I am going to Greece?
Iro: I would say it’s a good idea because in Greece you cannot find ATMs, especially in rural areas. Besides, credit card are not accepted everywhere in Greece.
Judith: It’s possible to receive or send money via money transferring companies. The fees for the services vary depending on the company and the amount. The transaction is completed in less than 24 hours.
Iro: To receive money, you must provide an ID such as a passport. You can also use a credit card to withdraw money from an ATM machine for free.
Judith: If you have foreign currency, you can exchange it in banks, as well as at the exchange bureaus, at the airport or in the center of Athens and other big cities. You might be asked to provide an ID here as well. Let’s take a look at the vocabulary for this lesson.
VOCAB LIST

Iro: Νούμερο
Judith: Number.
Iro: Νούμερο
Judith: This word if neuter. Next…
Iro: Φαρμακείο
Judith: Pharmacy.
Iro: Φαρμακείο
Judith: Again, neuter. Next…

Judith: To take out.
Iro: Βγάζω

Judith: “Correct” or “right”.
Iro: Σωστός
Judith: Next...
Iro: Τελευταίος
Judith: Last.
Iro: Τελευταίος
Judith: Next...
Iro: Κατάθεση
Judith: Deposit.
Iro: Κατάθεση
Judith: This word is feminine. Next…
Iro: Πριν από
Judith: Ago.
Iro: Πριν από
Judith: Next…
Iro: Μέρα
Judith: Day.
Iro: Μέρα
Judith: This word is feminine.
Iro: Μάλλον
Judith: Rather.
Iro: Μάλλον
Judith: Next...
Iro: Αντίο
Judith: Goodbye.
Iro: Αντίο
Judith: Let’s have a closer look at the usage for some of the words and phrases from this lesson.
VOCAB AND PHRASE USAGE
Iro: The first word we’ll look at is καλύτερα.
Judith: This word literally means “better”. And it often replaces the entire phrase “it would be better”
Iro: Today’s dialogue contains the phrase Περίμενε εκεί καλύτερα.
Judith: “Better wait there” or “wait there instead”.
Iro: Πριν από πέντε μέρες means “five days ago”.
Judith: The English word ago is strange. If you can say “in five days” and “four or five days”, why not “be four or five days”? Instead you suddenly have the word at the end. Well, Greek stays logical.
Iro: Πριν από πέντε μέρες is literally “before five days.”

Lesson focus

Judith: The focus of this lesson is numbers above 99. Today we shall learn the Greek numbers above 99, starting with 100.
Iro: 100 is εκατό, which changes to εκατόν as soon as you add anything after it. So 101 is εκατόν ένα , 110 is εκατόν δέκα and so on.
Judith: All the other hundreds are formed with the suffix -κόσια. 200…
Iro: διακόσια
Judith: 300
Iro: τριακόσια
Judith: 400
Iro: τετρακόσια
Judith: 500
Iro: πεντακόσια
Judith: 600
Iro: εξακόσια
Judith:700
Iro: εφτακόσια
Judith: 800
Iro: οχτακόσια
Judith: 900
Iro: Εννιακόσια. Finally, 1000 is χίλια, 2000 is δύο χιλιάδες, 3000 is τρεις χιλιάδες, 10,000 is δέκα χιλιάδες. You get the idea…

Outro

Judith: Well that just about does it for today.
Iro: Listeners, can you understand Greek TV shows, movies or songs?
Judith: How about friends and loved ones, conversations in Greek?
Iro: If you want to know what’s going on, we have the tool to help.
Judith: Line by line audio.
Iro: Listen to the lesson conversation line by line and learn to understand natural Greek fast.
Judith: It’s simple really.
Iro: With the click of a button, listen to each line of the conversation.
Judith: Listen again and again. Tune your ear to natural Greek.
Iro: Rapidly understand natural Greek with this powerful tool.
Judith: Find this feature on the lesson page under premium natural resources at GreekPod101.com. Okay, see you next time.
Iro: Γεια σας, τα λέμε την επόμενη φορά.

Έλιας και Στεφανία, I found the section you are referring to. It is in reference to the dialogue phrase: Περίμενε εκεί καλύτερα. In the "Vocab and pharse usage" section of the lesson (and the lesson transcript), it is translated as "better wait here", when in fact Αλέξις is saying "better wait there". I got confused by it too!

Hi Stefania

χωριστούν of Λίγο πριν χωριστούν της είπε αντίο.

I think its aorist meddle subjunctive but can be future.

It has got the omission of να, I reckon.

Thank you.

Hi Martha,


Thank you for your question.


The vocabulary section has the verbs βάζω and βγάζω in their dictionary form. The other forms you see in the transcript are inflected forms, and specifically, forms that use the aorist stem, which you already noticed, in the subjunctive mood (with the use on να before the verb). So they are all correct :)


Let me know if you have any other questions.


Kind regards,


Stefania

Per my previous comment - is this change caused by the aorist stem mentioned in the last lesson?


Thank you! :)

Hi, I have a question. In the transcript, "βγἀλω" means "to take out," but the vocabulary section spells the verb "βγἀζω."


Also, the transcript says "βἀλω" means "to deposit," but the vocabulary section spells the verb "βἀζω."


Which verbs are correct? :)

Hi Samantha,


Thank you for contacting us.


I'll try to clarify things about θα and να.


Θα is the particle that turns a verb into the future tense in the indicative mood.


Να is a particle that is usually used with a verb in the subjunctive mood. It has no relation to a specific tense like the future tense. The subjunctive mood presents the verb as a wish, an intention, a desire or an unreal action. In a structure like in the sentence "θα ήθελα να βγάλω..." it translates as "to": "I'd like TO withdraw..." (desire). In English, the subjunctive is like the verb form "were" when you say "If I were..." (unreal).


The formation of the future tenses in the indicative mood is as follows:


Future continuous: θα + present tense verb stem + present tense endings

Future simple: θα + aorist tense verb stem + present tense endings


The formation of the subjunctive mood is as follows:


Continuous form (also called present tense subjunctive, although it has no real relation to time):

να (or other words that require subjunctive) + present tense verb stem + present tense endings


Non-continuous form (also called aorist tense subjunctive, although it has no real relation to time):

να (or other words that require subjunctive) + aorist tense verb stem + present tense endings


Some lessons that talk about the subjunctive in the grammar section are:

Hi there,


In various lessons I see that sometimes 'θα' is used and other times 'να' for the future tense e.g.

Σε είκοσι λεπτά θα είμαι εκεί

Θα ήθελα να βγάλω τριακόσια τριάντα ευρώ


Please could you clarify when to use θα and when to use να. Or point me in the direction of a lesson that covers this.


Thank you!
