Greek - This house is big

We just learned that in Greek, we are surprised is Είναι έκπληκτοι (Eínai ékpliktoi)

Let's learn about some of the things we see every day.

To say this house is big in Greek you say Αυτό το σπίτι είναι μεγάλο (Aftó to spíti eínai megálo).

We can break it up into four words:

This (the) - Αυτό το (Aftó to) sounds like ah-f-TOH toh
In Greek you are really saying "This the" instead of just "this".

house - σπίτι (spíti) sounds like SPEE-tee

is - είναι (eínai) sounds like EE-nay

big - μεγάλο (megálo) sounds like may-GAH-loh
