This verb is conjugated the same way as like the verbs  (Verb Category A)
έχω (I have),
θέλω (I want),
πίνω (I drink),
and you can also find those verbs in our YouTube language videos list.

Let’s conjugate the verb  in the present tense. 

Εγώ     βλέπ-ω                        I see / watch

Εσύ      βλέπ-εις                      You see / watch

Αυτός,ή,ό  βλέπ-ει                He, she, it sees / watches

Εμείς    βλέπ-ουμε                  We see / watch

Εσείς    βλέπ-ετε                     You see (plural form “you”, or polite form “you”)  watch

Αυτοί,ές,ά  βλέπ-ουν            They see / watch


So if you have a balcony with  sea view, you can say “Βλέπω τη θάλασσα», —-> “I see the sea”. 

Or, if you forgot your glasses, you can say “Δε βλέπω καλά», —> “I don’t see well”.


You can also say “Βλέπω τηλεόραση», —-> “I watch TV” 

or «Βλέπω μια ταινία» —>  I watch a movie 

(Note; in Greek –‘ to see’ or ‘to watch” is the same verb )

This verb can also mean “to meet”. Example;
Κάθε Σάββατο βλέπω τα ξαδέρφια μου», —-> “I meet my cousins every Saturday”. 


Let’s now learn the verb in Future Tense


Εγώ θα δ-ω

Εσύ θα δ-εις

Αυτός,ή,ό θα δ-ει

Εμείς θα δ-ούμε

Εσείς θα δ-είτε

Αυτοί,ές,ά θα δ-ουν


So if you want to say “I will watch a series tonight”, you will say “Θα δω μια σειρά απόψε».

Or if you want to ask somebody if they will see someone, you can ask  “Θα δεις τη Μαρία αύριο;“” –> “Will you see / meet Maria tomorrow?”

Expressions used on a daily basis in Greece

“Θα δω», —> “I will see”. 


“Θα δούμε»  —>  we will see

For example,; if somebody asks “Θα έρθεις αύριο στο πάρτι;» (Will you come to the party tomorrow?” )
, but you are not sure yet, you can answer;

-Θα δω. (I will see)

-Θα δούμε. (We will see)

CAREFUL : This does NOT mean “See you”, but “We will see”
