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.

To Be or Not To Be - the most useful verb

ΕΙΜΑΙείμαιimayI am
ΕΙΣΑΙείσαιisayYou are
ΕΙΝΑΙείναιinayHe/she/it is
ΕΙΜΑΣΤΕείμαστεimastayWe are
ΕΙΣΤΕείστεistayYou are
ΕΙΝΑΙείναιinayThey are

To make a verb negative add ΔΕΝ (δεν) in front of the verb. Hence "Δεν είμαι" (ΔΕΝ ΕΙΜΑΙ)means "I am not"

i have altered the pronunciation spellings from using "ee" to "i" for the start of the verb. This is just to be in keeping with other posts on this blog. The "i" is pronounced like the fianl letter of the word Brocolli.
