Asking questions is an essential part of learning a language. Not only are questions a normal part of every day conversation, but they can actually enable you to learn Greek faster. For example, if you encounter a Greek speaker who also knows English, you can ask questions like, “How do you say (name of item)?” or “What is that?” in order to build your vocabulary. They can also help you get to know someone, enable you to get directions, and even be able to ask the time. Here’s a look at a list of common questions you might need to ask in the Greek language:
