How to say “you’re welcome” in Greece

Remember my last post? The one about how to say “please” in Greek?

When being thanked, Greeks use the exact same word to say “you’re welcome.” They’re actually using a stub of the original response “Please, don’t mention it.”

So if you can say “please” in Greece to ask for something, then you can say “you’re welcome” with equal ease.

Remember the little mnemonic? you’ll never need a PARAmedic if you burn off those CALOries walking around the sights of Greece.

If you combine the first two syllables of PARAMEDIC and CALORIES, presto, you’ve just said “you’re welcome” to the clerk or waiter thanking you for your patronage.

You may hear the word pronounced by a native here.
