    I so look forward to the Greek architecture, drinks, food and culture. Can't wait!
    Baklava, kalimera, kalispera, kalinighta, efcharisto are about the only words in New Greek I know :p
    I know Ancient Greek but that's not spoken anymore in Athens these days haha.

    I definitely will.
    My fellow students will probably be much younger but it gives me an opportunity to re-live my early 20s again haha.
    Partying, booze and fun and lots of studying of course ;-)

    Those are useful words. I can contribute only about four more - and that's it. Ouzo, retsina and spanakopita might be useful. And after the first two, diskía ponokefálou (headache tablets) might be indispensable. :) You're gonna party like it's chília enniakósia enenínta ennéa (1999.) Congrats! :)

    There is a Greek restaurant I go to sometimes that has a short list of Greek phrases printed on their paper napkins. I remember absolutely none of it.

    Cool!
    I attended a Greek church for a few years, so in addition to baklava and spanakopita - also Kyrie Eleison, Christos Anesti, and Theotocos. Oh, and "thanks" is "eukaristo".

    Hi Stanislav. Church is always different, it seems. I think you'll find Modern Greek speakers pronounce it "efcharisto" and that's how it's usually treansliterated in English. Yep Google pronounces it "Efcharistó, too." And yes -about Church. English-speaking churches use the word "Eucharist" and pronounce it the English way - like your Church's "eukaristo." (And yes - it's still spelled in Greek like it should be said that way. ) But in a ταβέρνα (tavern) in Piraeus, today, the pronunciation for the word for "thanks" is definitely "efcharisto" - as TB said. :)

    Pronunciation of Greek has changed way more thn spelling has over the last 2500+ years. This word clearly spelled "eu" as always, but gets pronounced "ef". Churches, naturally, take a more traditional approach.

    Not just Greek churches! "Eucharist" is what those in the Anglican Communion call the service that Catholics call a Mass.

    Just curious, someone inquired, is the tuition still available at $3K USD?
    I checked their site again, there no longer is a "date" as it previously did...

    We're well over a year past the original deadline, and every time I check the site it says something different, or nothing at all. The good news is that everyone that has reported enrolling in the MBA has also reported getting the $3000 tuition offer. No one knows how long it will continue. Not even the staff at HAU.
    Congratulations on your new path and for the awesome scholarship!

    HAU was already generating buzz for a few years for its Linguistics, Interpreting and Translation programs. The faculty is absolutely stacked with heavy hitting scholars from both sides of the Atlantic. It's how I originally learned of HAU, before the MBA became big deal around the DI/DF sphere.

    We've already covered the fact it isn't just Greek Churches.

    Steve, my quote, again: "English-Speaking churches use the word "Eucharist" and pronounce it in the English way..."

    And yes - Anglican Church (actually, Church of England - in England) is where I learned the word - and what it meant in Church - as a boy of 7 or so.

    Yep, I've been to one of these. I'm pretty sure Catholics call it that sometimes, too, just like some people say "Anglican Mass".
    "Eucharist" is a Greek-origin term for the Holy Communion, and since it is the very center of Divine Liturgy/Mass, the service gets to be called by that name. It's the same tradition: the Roman Catholic Mass has "Kyrie Eleison" chant ("Lord, have mercy") in Greek, and in many churches they use the title "Theotocos" (God-Bearer) for Mary.

    Indeed they do. Father MacGoogle says: "Today, 'the Eucharist' is the name still used by Eastern Orthodox, Oriental Orthodox, Catholics, Anglicans, Presbyterians, and Lutherans."
