The official languages of Cyprus are Greek and Turkish. Turkish is spoken in the north of the island and Greek Cypriot in the south. This is a local version of Greek but standard Greek is also understood. English is the island’s second language so you’ll find it spoken on both sides of the border. If you want to try out your Greek or Turkish then there are some useful phrases above.
