Playing catch up

Welcome to Greece Is The Word! ( do you get the pun?)

My original idea was to do a daily digest of the day’s events, words I’ve learnt etc.  So, four days into my Odyssey I have a bit of catching up to do. I’m trying desperately to get to grips with the language so my idea is that I will post any new words, concepts or insights here, therefore, hopefully solidifying any memories in my middle-aged brain.

So, without further ado, here’s a list of all the new words I’ve picked up since Sunday.

Feel free to add your comments, opinions etc!

(a couple of notes, I’ve included the Greek and English translations for new words of the day. I’ve also included a column for my own mnemonics/notes for the particular word or phrase. If you’re unfamiliar with this learning style, check out, which I’m currently addicted to. It’s a powerful way to learn pretty much anything, by forcing you to use mnemonics as memory aids)
