Greek is the official language of Greece, and is also one of the official languages of the Republic of Cyprus. There are big Greek and Cypriot communities throughout the Western world and also in neighbouring countries, such as Albania, Bulgaria and Turkey. Cactus language offers evening Greek courses in London.
Greek is fairly easier to learn and read for English speakers, as most of the letters and sounds found in Greek exist in English. It is estimated that around 30% of English vocabulary has been influenced in some way by words of Classical Greek origin. Most of these words are technical or scientific terms. Many people are drawn to learning Greek for its history, philosophy and writers as some of the most famous and influential philosophers of all time were from the ancient Greek world, including Socrates, Plato, and Aristotle.
