Enjoy the spelling of Greek :)

Actually, when reading, it's great - they even mark the stressed syllable, so it's easy to tell pairs like "present (the verb) / present (the noun)" apart.

But when writing you get to learn which of two "o" sounds, which of two "e" sounds, and which of five "i" sounds to use :) (Well, really six, but the last one is limited to a handful of words, which aren't even used all that much.)

But still - don't let that stop you! Go and learn Greek!
