ALL GREEK TO ME

Athenians have a word for everything! Although English is also spoken here, understanding what is now Greek to you can get you far:

Hello, goodbye, cheers = ya-ssou (abbrev = yaaa!)
Yes = neh
No = oh-khe (or simply tsk)
Please, welcome = pah-rah-kah-low
Thank you = ef-khar-ee-stow
How are you? = Tee-kah-nees
Fine = kah-la
What is your name? = pos-seh-leh-neh?
My name is.... = meh-leh-neh......
I don't understand Greek = then cat-ah-la-ven-oh eh-len-ee-kah
Do you speak English? = mi-lah-te ag-gli-ka?
Where is... = poo ee-neh…
How much... = pos-oh kah-nee
It's too much = ee-neh po-lee
Food = fag-ee-toh (abbrev = faee)
Water = neh-ro
Bank = trap-ez-ah
Restaurant = restaur-an (!)
Bus = leh-oh-for-ee-oh
Toilet = toua-let-tah
Come, oh come on = e-lah
Who is... = phi-os eh-neh…
I don’t know = de-hn xe-ro
Leave me alone = pa-ra-ta-meh

Italics signify phonetic accent. Practice in front of your mirror. If you convince yourself that you sound like a Greek, then you can convince an Athenian.
