Greek: His face is rough


We just learned in Greek her hands are soft is Τα χέρια της είναι μαλακά (Ta chéria tis eínai malaká).

To say his face is rough you would say Το πρόσωπό του είναι τραχύ (To prósopó tou eínai trachý).
That really says the face his is rough.

We can break it up into five words:

The - Το (To) - sounds like toh
face - πρόσωπό (prósopó) - sounds like p-DOH-soh-POH
his - του (tou) - sounds like too
is - είναι (eínai) - sounds like EE-nay
rough - τραχύ (trachý) - sounds like t-dah-HEE


So all together Το πρόσωπό του είναι τραχύ (To prósopó tou eínai trachý) sounds like toh p-DOH-soh-POH too EE-nay t-dah-HEE.

my drink is cold is Το ποτό μου είναι κρύο (To potó mou eínai krýo),
your food is hot is Το φαγητό είναι ζεστό (To fagitó eínai zestó),
and their car is tall is Το αυτοκίνητό τους είναι ψηλό (To aftokínitó tous eínai psiló).

To say our table is short you would say Το τραπέζι μας είναι σύντομο (To trapézi mas eínai sýntomo).

Greek - Their car is tall


We just learned in Greek:
this chair is small is Η καρέκλα είναι μικρή (I karékla eínai mikrí),
my drink is cold is Το ποτό μου είναι κρύο (To potó mou eínai krýo), and your food is hot is Το φαγητό είναι ζεστό (To fagitó eínai zestó).

To say their car is tall you would say Το αυτοκίνητό τους είναι ψηλό (To aftokínitó tous eínai psiló).
You're really saying "the car their is tall" because Greek works a little differently than English.

We can break it up like this:

The - Το (To) - sounds like toh
car - αυτοκίνητό (aftokínitó) - sounds like ah-f-toh-KEE-nee-TOH
their - τους (tous)- sounds like too-ss
is - είναι (eínai) - Sounds like EE-nay
tall - ψηλό (psiló) - Sounds like ps-ee-LOH

So all together Το αυτοκίνητό τους είναι ψηλό (To aftokínitó tous eínai psiló) sounds like toh ah-f-toh-KEE-nee-TOH too-ss EE-nay ps-ee-LOH.
