Currently age 77 and married for 55 years and have always had an interest in Greek people and language. Lived in Cyprus for 3 years after retiring but love the Greek Islands.
Started to teach myself Greek from books and online aa few years ago learning verbs from '201 Greek Verbs' and can now read and write Greek at Intermediate level - but understanding spoken Greek is a problem as have few Greeks living near me!
Visit the Islands on holidays at least twice a year and try to speak Greek everywhere. They understand me reasonably well I think!
I was chrismated into the Greek Orthodox Church 6 years ago in the UK and took as my Greek name 'Ιάκοβος' which means 'Brother of Christ' -my second christian name being James.
