Is English spoken in Greece ?


I’m thinking about traveling to Athens in a few years for vacation. Will the tour guid(s) know any English ?

    If you visit a tourist spot (islands or big cities in the mainland), there are high chances that people will be able to speak English

    It's not the main official language, but you'll find that lots of Greeks can speak reasonable English.

    Tour guides usually know at least some depending on what language(s) they specialize in. 

    Whether if enough to answer questions & provide relevant, useful info remains to be seen. 

    Try learning at least a few words / phrases so you are not completely dependent on them: Americans have a questionable enough reputation around the world & trump isn't helping.

    Greeks Speak Greek - And English

    But since all schoolchildren start learning English in the third grade, most Greeks under 40 will also know English. Those in the tourist industry, especially in the locations favored by foreign tourists, usually have a good command of English as well as a few other languages

    About half of the country is able to speak English.
