About the Language
Greek is an ancient Hellenic language of the Indo-European family. With over 13 million speakers, it is spoken natively in Greece, Cyprus, Turkey, Italy, Albania, Romania, Egypt, France, and Ukraine. Modern Greek differs from Classical Greek; it comprises varieties of the language spoken in the present era, and traces its origin to the fall of the Byzantine Empire in 1453. However, modern linguistic features began to appear as early as the 4th century CE.
