Hi there, This resource was for anyone who was interested in learning Modern Greek, but was primarily used as a repository for classnotes for a first year Modern Greek evening class.
Although this blog site will remain here, it has now been superceeded by a a regular website www.allgreek2me.com which contains all the referance material available on this blog. Additionally all future Year 2 referance notes will only appear on the new website.

In English the definite article is "the" and the indefinite article is "a" or "an"
The Greek is a little more complex as the articles change depending on the gender of the word they are associated with. However the indefinite article in Greek uses the same word as the number "one", hence ένα μάτι (ΕΝΑ ΜΑΤΙ)means both "an eye" and "one eye".
