Greek etymology, is something we often use in our Greek lessons.
But this time, we will use it to explain you a bit more about why we chose the name „omilo“ or “ ομιλώ“.
„Omilo Greek Language and Culture“ was founded in 1996, so we are around for many years 🙂 Even longer than „google“ ! 🙂
And …in case you were wondering…
“Omilo” or „ομιλώ¨, actually is a verb and means “I speak”!
Because at Omilo, we really try to focus on „speaking Greek“!
If you already know some Greek, then you now might wonder: Why “omilo“ (ομιλώ) and not “milao” (μιλάω)?
Well, both verbs mean „I speak“, but the latter is more used in the everyday Greek language, so you will hear it more.
Careful; when you pronounce „omilo“, make sure you stress the LAST O, since also there is the stress in the verb; ομιλώ
