    I have two dilemmas about Greek.
    1.This one is a little funny.You know those things to eat in Greece,"PAPADOPOULOS"?!Well,in Greek it's:"ΠΑΠΑΔΟΠΟΥΛΟΥ",and how do you get "S" in English?Where is "S" in the word "ΠΑΠΑΔΟΠΟΥΛΟΥ"?
    2.How do you say "no" in Greek?Is it "δεν" or "οχι" or both?The same story with "yes"...

    1. You probably talk about the biscuits! It's Miranda Papadopoulou, a female name. The male is Papadopoulos. In English they don't have genders so they say Papadopoulos for both male and female. I'm really angry with that. It's very annoying. They can do whatever they want with their surnames, but not with ours.
    2. No in Greek is όχι. We use δε or δεν to form our negation. For example, "Όχι, δε θα πάω σχολείο αύριο" (=No, i won't go to school tomorrow)

    Aaaa,I understand now.Well thank you Maria,you are such a sweety

    And,yes it's biscuits!
    Um,something crossed my mind and I don't understand again.It's the song "Αν δεν κοιτάζω εσένα".Does that mean:"If I don't look at you"?Is "δεν"="don't"?And where's "oχι" now?
    I am sorry if I bother you too much.It's complicated for me...

    Hehe Angeliki mou, it's not necesary to say ohi, I just made an example for both occations. I could say "De tha pao sholio avrio" (=I won't go to school tomorrow), but I added ohi to see the difference.
    Btw I like these biscuits!

    @lessena:Thanks.Yes,I am very interested in Portuguese!3 years ago,Portuguese children came to Serbia because of the 'Joy of Europe'.Then,I realized how beautiful Portuguese is.I knew a few things but I have forgotten almost everything.
    @maria_gr:Now I see.I understand now,really! I adore those biscuits,I miss them very much. Maybe we have them in Super Vero,but I can't find them....

    Wisalias, you wonder about the cases, so I'll help you a little bit.

    Nominative: we use to answer to the question who or what. For example: Η δασκάλα μας μίλησε για τα ανώμαλα ρήματα (=the teacher told us about the irregular verbs).
    Genitive: we use to answer to the question whose. For example: Το βιβλίο αυτό είναι της δασκάλας μας (=this book is of our teacher, this is our teacher's book).
    Accusative: we use to answer to the question whom or what. For example: Χρειάζομαι τη δασκάλα γιατί έχω κάποιες απόρίες (=I need the teacher cause I have some questions).
    Vocative: we use to call or to address someone. For example: Δασκάλα αυτό δεν το κατάλαβα (=Teacher, I didn't get that).
