About Greek

Greek is one of the Indo-European languages, with more than 4,000 years of development and history. The language is spoken by more than 10 million people in Greece alone and around 4 million people elsewhere. Australia, Canada, the USA, and South Africa still have the largest Greek-speaking populations outside Greece. There are a large number of English loanwords in Greek such as complex, stress and camping. Many sports are also identical in both languages, for instance tennis and volleyball. Greek is a very interesting language, rooted in a deep and rich cultural heritage and spoken by a proud nation.
