Verb

One I’m = ime – είμαι. You are = ise – είσαι. He/she/it is = ine – είναι. Plural We are = imaste – είμαστε. You are = isaste or iste – είσαστε η είστε. They are = ine – είναι (third person is the same in one or plural). p.s When you speak with someone that you don’t know well, it’s better to speak to him/her in plural (except when you speak about yourself). Plural is the gentle way to speak with someone you don’t know, but if you know him/her it’s not right because you put distance between you and him/her.

So if I talk to one friend using "iste" they might think I'm angry at them or something by being formal? When you talk to older family members do you use "ise" or "iste" to be respectful?

Respectful is always iste but don't be so respectful to your friends, they will feel that u keep them to distance.

So it would be normal and not weird to say something like "yia sas pappoús, ti kànete;"

Yes, but remove the s from the end of the names when u talk to him/her/them (see lesson 2).

Hi, I'm a Mexican guy who's trying to learn Greek, so I would really appreciate your help. I'm an English teacher, so I will send you some material to pick up some Greek vocabulary as my students learn English, in that way it would be easier for me to learn Greek, 
Euxaristo poly!
