Η ωραία Ελλας
in response to mummimamma's post, i would be greatly interested in such a community!
i have been learning greek for more than a year from teach yourself greek, and am on the last unit. i tried to sign up to a course in sheffield, the city where i'm at university, but they had to cancel it for lack of interest. i am determined to learn but when i ask greeks about things they are not prepared to talk about things in depth, maybe because they get bored, they dont 'know' the rules, or can't even see why i'm so interested. the only greek i know who doesn't speak english is my boyfriend's mum, so i can't practice much for real with native speakers as i did with spanish, learning things piece by piece. anyway, if anyone could help from time to time with questions i have, i would be really really appreciative, i would be absolutely delighted. the idea of meeting a real teacher of modern greek seems fantastic!
one question i have right now is...... how do i know when to use 'mou' and when to use 'me'? obviously one is direct and one indirect but.... i can see that with 'to say' you always(?) use 'mou', but how do you know for example that it is
