First week

Publié dans Cyprus

 So, I have done so many things in the last days! University is great! I love the courses that I'm following. i have a course called Public speaking, we'll have to prepare some presentations and interview or films for the class. Really nice for my english 

An other course i follow is about intercultural communication and it's so interesting! We'll talk about our cultures and different ways of perceiving things. I have also a course on the History of europe since 1850. The course I had today was about Race and ethnicity, we are just 4. The professor would like us to create a website and interview some people on the island about Immigration and their situation here. I think it's going to be something so rewarding and amusing.

Before my arrival here I was told not to talk about Turkey but the thing is that all my teachers keep talking about it. And I'm glad! They tell us so many thing about the cypriot conflict, about the border, about the situation between the greeks and the turks here. It is really nice to see that most of the people I met this week are so open minded.

I met erasmus as well and they are quite nice too! We plan to party a little bit more and discover the Island together. This weekend I'll go to Famagusta on the turkish side. 

The student Union here tries to organize some trips and activities but here is Cyprus and not Germany so it takes more time. I'll have to learn to be patient! 

Oh! and I registered for some clubs, hiking club, art and photography club and intercultural communication club! That way i'll meet more people!

The Greek Alphabet and the sounds of the greek letters

Publié dans Cyprus

The Greek language is considered as one of the most difficult languages to learn! Here is the alphabet.

 

My god I already learned lots of languages but this one seems to be so difficult. I am very curious to hear how it sounds and see if I can remember some words! Let's hope I'll talk a little bit of greek before I come back to France!

kalispera = good afternoon. Used only when coming to a place or meeting someone in the evening or at night.

kalinihta = good night. Used only as a goodbye greeting in the evening or at night.
