Here are a few helpful phrases to master, written phonetically. Accent the syllable in CAPITAL letters:

KaleeMEra - Good morning
KaleeSPERa - Good evening
YahSU - Hello
EfcareeSTO - Thank you
ParakaLOH - Please, also heard as "you're welcome"
KAthika - I am lost

Big warning: In Greek, the word for "No" sounds like "Okay" - OH-kee, as in "Okey-dokey". Remember, if it sounds like "Okay" it means "No way!"

And the word for "Yes" sounds like "No" - NEH! It may help to think it sounds like "Now", as in "Let's do it right now."
