Re: AFM - 2 quick questions

I tend to agree with Filippos, I would ask my accountant to do it for me. If you do go ahead and do it yourself you both need to fill in an M1 form and sign it. You can download it as a pdf here . For you to get your wife's form she will have to write a an authorisation on a "ΥΠΕΥΘΥΝΗ ΔΗΛΩΣΗ&qu...

Re: Greek Lessons or Books

A couple of additional comments on gender, Bob. Firstly, it isn't only a waste of time assigning gender to inanimate objects in some cases words do not have an appropriate gender. Κορίτσι is the Greek word for girl and grammatically its gender is neuter. In the UK and the USA a debate is getting goi...

If you are quick, Bob, before anybody posts something after it, you can delete the second post completely. Once somebody has added to the thread you can only delete the content using edit.

Re: Finding a previous post

Presumably if you know they wanted a garden then the word garden must have appeared in their post. If you put the word garden into the search box there is no post like you describe going back to the beginning of 2015 in any section of the forum. Are you sure it was on here, not a different forum? Wa...

Re: Greek Lessons or Books

You must have typed that on a phone or tablet? The predictive spelling has done a real job on it but I think I get the drift. No contact with teachers. The online course is quite old and you just work your way through it. There used to be a free course in Chania during the winter months but I don't ...

Re: Finding a previous post

Could it be this one. It's not exactly as you describe but it is the nearest I can find.

Re: Greek Lessons or Books

There's also this free one from Cyprus. People will tell you that Cypriot Greek is totally different from Cretan Greek but, trust me, if your Greek gets good enough to tell the difference you won't need to worry about it. When people can't understand me in Crete I always claim it is because of my Po...

Re: Greek Lessons or Books

I'm a scientist and an engineer Clio. I can only learn by finding out how things work. I cannot learn by absorbing random facts. It doesn't work for me. I agree that the alphabet is the first thing to learn. In an attempt to redeem myself: Greek 101 - Το ελληνικό αλφάβητο To elleeneeko alfaveeto The...

Re: Ryanair Cancellations

Monarch did go into administration this morning. Their 300,000 future bookings are cancelled and the CAA is working to repatriate the 110,000 passengers that are stranded abroad. Coming on the back of Ryanair it is not a good time for travellers or airline employees.

Re: Greek Lessons or Books

The one good thing about Greek compared to English is that, with very, very few exceptions, a particular letter combination always sounds the same. Once you have learnt them that's it. It is fairly easy to get to the point where you can read a Greek word and say it out loud more or less correctly. T...

Re: Ryanair Cancellations

I apologise profusely for misstating your words. To make my comment completely clear I will reword it. Personally I have no idea which are the MOST profitable routes but if I was running an airline, which I am not, I would be inclined to put MORE flights on the MOST profitable routes not on the LEAS...

Re: Ryanair Cancellations

In many cases people who are working are more short of time than they are of money. Personally I would claim it but I am pretty sure my son wouldn't. What proportion will and won't I have no idea. I think Mouche is right that many won't. I am not sure he is right that they have cancelled on the leas...

Re: Ryanair Cancellations

While the numbers seem large I think I saw a report that it was still less than 1 % of the total number of Ryanair passenger flights in a year so perhaps not such a big hit? Less than 1 million passenger flights have been cancelled and Ryanair expect to have around 130 million passenger flights this...

Now it looks like Monarch is on shaky ground.
