Learn Greek at the supermarket!

More Greek vocabulary

If you want to learn Greek at the supermarket these words will come in handy

Cyprus food You don't really need to speak Greek when you go to one of the big supermarkets on the island.
A supermarket aisle in Cyprusis fairly similar to anywhere else in the world.

BUT you may need to ask for things at the deli counter or in the butchery department.

Many staff on these countersdo not necessarily speak English well, so it may be worth your while to learn some Greek for common things you are likely to need in the supermarket.
