TC teachers offer Greek lessons

How can we solve it? (keep it civilized)

Well, Palio! I have misjudged you if you have Turkish Cypriots as friends. As he is by definition a defector, he would face prison time for avoiding military service, but his not being wanted by the Cypriot National guard is most likely becaise of his Turkish Cypriot background. What is quaintly called "a possible potential security risk".

Good to know that in the South they're doing it too. Stories I kept hearing was the difficulties TCs have when trying to do things in the south even though RoC was supposed to operate in 3 languages. Tks for insight. Maybe they're not as bigoted in the South as I'd assumed, and are keen to learn from the culture of their neighbours?

Okey dokey Palio, $100 bucks cool.

yes i do i visit them in the north on a regular basis and some of them come to the south :) they are nice people not for partition i may add..

yes he told me he would go to jail as soon as he step foot in the north again.

well either that or because he has no Greek cypriot perants.. i think its the same for any foreigner who moves over.. if they have perants from cyprus or one perant they dont do army. i forget exactly how it is..

but your most likely right.

tell me a man or woman that does know everything?:)

im just saying the tcs have more rights in the south then gcs will ever have in the north while under occupation.. that turkish is taught that tcs take our jobs and we are left with nothing because we dont speak turkish.. i should know i went for a job and thats what they told me..

this will be some easy money ;p espesially if turkey bans kurdish language and bans tc dialect from the north..

Interesting... despite he is an "equal" and "legal" "Cypriot" citizen of so-called RoC, was exempted from his "national" duty; military service... but it shouldn't be... he must have had a certificate of insanity that makes him a privilaged TC "citizen" of the so-called RoC.

nice step foward from the tcs.. but 100 dollars bet that the leaders of the trnc stop it


The only reason they are offering Greek lessons is (as I said a while back) that Greek has had a resurgence and any self-respecting school now offers Greek alongside/instead of French, Latin etc.

Besides, the EU solution will logically have one official language and that will be Greek, so get ready! :D

That was imposed upon us much like the TC Vice-President ticket and other unfair racist privileges for the TCs. A solution via the EU will take into account this unnecessary racist obligation to have Turkish and will continue to use Greek only as the ONE Official language, as they do now. Only Greek is the officially recognised language of Cyprus at EU meetings. ... no Turkish! :D

Of course, English is unavoidable which is fine.

But Greek has been rediscovered as an elitist language .... so we shouldn't let these Turk-speakers make us feel guilty that just because they are learning Greek to improve their prospects we should learn Turkish; because that will take us backwards and turn us into laughing stocks whilst the whole world moves forward with Greek...
