are there any regional accents which Athenians for instance would find it genuinely hard to understand?


I think that they'd have a pretty hard time following a conversation in Sfakian dialect. And so do I.

it is good to see Jean posting on this site.


Thanks Kathleen. I am happy to post here too.
