The existence of Greek words in other languages is well known. At our School we have created a small dictionary with such words in different languages, words which have been selected on the base of the great similarity of their pronunciation with their greek origins. Therefore our students can easily understand the origin of each word and be happy because really they “already know Greek.” The most recent addition to this dictionary has been made by Anna, our student from Hungary. So we have added several hundreds of Hungarian words of greek origin.
We note that these bilingual dictionaries help our students to learn the Greek alphabet and start reading greek texts and to stop being afraid of Greek language. Besides the advanced students may use this dictionary to greatly enrich their vocabulary.
Here below are some such Hungarian words, the meaning of which everyone will immediately understand whatever language he speaks.
