    Are you sure it's Greek Paul? I'm pretty sure mine is in Russian. I started Russian evening classes this term and I wondered if I had ticked the wrong language box by mistake or got a rogue cookie - but if it has affected everyone that is really impressive!

    After 8 evening classes and a lot of homework, I am pretty confident that I can translate Olympus PEN E-PL10 should I ever need to

                  That is Russian, or at least the Cyrillic alphabet. Greek does not use reversed letters.

                    Russian did import a few letters from Greek to augment the earlier Cyrillic alphabet. I'm not sure exactly which ones, but the modern Russian F, G and P certainly look similar to their Greek counterparts.

                      Mr. Google agrees with you:

                      The new Olympus PEN E-PL10 is on sale now: a lightweight yet powerful tool for content creators! Elegant in both form and content, this camera is a classic example of design art and at the same time surprisingly easy to use. It allows you to focus on the most important thing - to get high-quality images.

                        John,

                        It's also a matter of which alphabet. They have four!

                          Cursive is just crazy! Trying to learn all that plus a grammar and vocab that are significantly different from any other language I know is quite a challenge for an ageing brain.
