Mi chiamo Maria, e sono una ragazza Greca. You ll have to excuse my awful italian and my mixing italian and english, but I ve only started studying italian some weeks ago. Vorrei scrivere un po molto per me, ma non sono sicura che lo riesco. Spero di fare meglio in futuro. :D (Please, feel free to correct my mistakes!)

Grazie per il benvenuto ladybird!

I m quite lucky actually, as I am in the same time zone as Italy. Eitherway, I m used to time differences, since I ve been in various international internet communities the past years. What I m worried about is that I m neither an english or an italian native speaker, so you all have to be double patient with me :D

By the way, is anybody learning economical/politic terms (especially those used by goverment authorities) in italian? I m going to need those for an exam I m taking, but I still haven t found a italian dictionary on those fields.

Actually my nick comes from a very old greek movie, where one of my favourite comedians is agent 000 (a parody of agent 007). Se tu hai bisogno di auito in parole grece, auitero con piacere! :)

Ciao Maria e benvenuta anche da parte mia.

Il modo migliore di imparare qualcosa è di domandare le questioni. Quindi, come Rolly ha detto, 'go for it'!! :D :D

Whats "mitico"?

( i ll try answering that in italian, any corrections are more than wellcome)
La casa dei miei genitori e in Crete, ma mi hai traslocato ad Atena cinque anni fa, per motivi di studio. E un diverso modo di vita, ma abitare da solo e una grande esperienza.

Che cosa pensi di Atena? Hai piacuto qui?

(What I ve been trying to say is: "My parent's house is in Crete, but I moved to Athens five years ago to study. The way of life is different, but living on your own is a great experence. What do you think of Athens? Did you like it here?)

Ciao!

I've been in Greece many times, I love it ;) I've been in Athina, Thessaloniki, Rodos, Naxos, Elafonissos, Lefkada, Penisola Calcidica, Vergina, Meteora, Delphoi, Kammena Vourla... :D

I studied ancient Greek at school and now I'm trying to learn modern Greek, will you help me? ;)

I ll definatelly help you, especially since you ve been in places whose names I cannt recognise :oops: (I m googling Penisola right now :lol: ).
Just ask away :D Modern or ancient greek I think I can help in both. I had to study ancient greek for my university entrance exams, and althought I ve forgotten the most, I used to be very good at it.

I don't know how to translate Penisola calcidica... halkidiki? :D anyway, Kassandra, Sitonia... you know?

Well, my main problem is to write Greek in Latin letters (I mean in the forum) eheh! Are there any rules?

Then, I could write you something in your language but I'm sure I'll make lots of mistakes :P

Wow, Halkidiki! That sounds naughty :P

Well, I cannt really write greek in latin letters too... There is a very scientific way to do that (phonetics, phonologics, something like that) but I m very bad at it. You can download greek fonts if youre really into learning the language. The best rules I can come up with is to write things as they sound. And there is no way you d make more mistakes than what I do when typing either in english or in italian :oops:
