Hello Language Lovers! Thank you for joining me for this episode of Speaking Tongues- the podcast in conversation with multilinguals. My guest this week is Stefanos a Greek language teacher from Cyprus who joined me to talk about Greek and Cypriot language and culture.
I’m so thrilled to finally have a conversation about Greek on this podcast because it’s truly one of my favorite languages to listen to. In this episode, Stefanos talks to us about some connections between Modern Greek and Ancient Greek and the Cypriot Greek dialect. We discuss Greek etymology and even discuss some of our favorite root words that we can find in modern languages. Stefanos tells us about dialects of Greek that can be found throughout the Mediterranean and connections from Greek to the languages spoken in Albania and Bulgaria. He walks us through understanding greek grammar and we even get to talk a bit about Greek culture and music.
You can find a deleted portion of the conversation by visiting Buy Me a Coffee dot com where Stefanos and I talk about Greek food and culinary traditions. We’re discussing all of your favorites from mezze to main dishes to desserts. If you don’t know much about Greek food, you will want to hear this - but don’t listen on an empty stomach!
