There are two official languages spoken in Paphos and throughout the rest of Cyprus: Greek and Turkish. You’ll find that Greek is more commonly spoken out of the two though. The majority of Cypriots speak excellent English, especially in the more touristy areas. And wherever you go, most signs and menus will be written in both Greek and English. However, it’s seen as polite and respectful to try and learn at least a few words of the native language for the place that you’re visiting on holiday. Even just ‘hello’, ‘please’ and ‘thank you’. So take a look at the most useful phrases that you might need and click on the green icons to hear how they are pronounced.
