- Some interesting Grecian facts...
Use of the Greek language can be divided into six different main time periods: Proto-Greek, Mycenaean Greek, Ancient Greek, Koine Greek, Medieval Greek and Modern Greek. Greek is written in the Greek alphabet, which consists of 24 characters but it lacks many sounds that would normally be used in the English language. This causes a lot of problems for Greek speakers, especially when pronouncing English words like ‘fish’ and ‘shop’. The learning process of the Greek language would take up to 44 weeks which is around 1100 hours for an English native speaker.
