Greek - We are surprised

We just learned that I am happy in Greek is Είμαι χαρούμενος (eímai charoúmenos),
you are sad is Είσαι λυπημενος (Eísai lypimenos),
he is angry is Είναι θυμωμένος (Eínai thymoménos),
and they are excited is Είναι ενθουσιασμένοι (Eínai enthousiasménoi).

Let's learn how to say We are surprised.

Είναι έκπληκτοι (Eínai ékpliktoi)

We can break it up into two words:

We are - Είναι (Eínai) - Sounds like EE-nay

Surprised - έκπληκτοι (ékpliktoi) - Sounds like EH-k-plee-k-tee

So all together Είναι έκπληκτοι (Eínai ékpliktoi) sounds like EE-nay Eh-k-plee-k-tee.
