Here's How to Count to Ten in Greek1. Ena - EN-a : Think "EN-a ONE" as in the phrase "An' a one, an' a two..." used to count into a piece of music.
2. Dio - THEE-oh : Try remembering "duo" for "dio" - again, like in a musical duo.
3. Tria - TREE-a : Again, music makes this one easy - think of a trio of musicians.
4. Tessera - TESS-air-uh : This one is harder, but there are four letters in the name "TESS" .
5. Pente - PEN-day : The PENTagon is a five-sided shape - and also an important building for Americans.
6. Exi - EX-ee : This one, it may help to think about being s-exi... which sounds closer to "six".
7. Epta - EP-TA (about equal stress) : If only the Romans hadn't messed with the calendar, S-eptember would still be the seventh month of the year. Try thinking of a seventy-seven year-old S-eptagenarian for this one.
8. Octo - oc-TOH : Want some eight-legged octopus for dinner tonight?
9. Ennea - en-NAY-a : Ennea has two "ns" in it - just like our own number nine.
10. Deka - THEK-a : Easy - remember a decade is a group of ten years.
There you are - you can now count to ten in Greek!
