    Hi,

    For "It's all Greek to me!" I believe you use Chinese as the example of the incomprehensible language.

    I've heard it in various forms - but what is the form that is closest of all to "It's all Greek to me!", please?

    Do you have anything closer than 'Ἃυτά είναι κινέζικα', for example? This lacks a word or words for "to me".

    Best,

    Simon

    Just add "για μένα". Eg. "(Αυτά) είναι κινέζικα για μένα". Occasionally it's expressed as "Αυτά μου φαίνονται κινέζικα".

    Another expression for "I don't understand anything at all" is "Δεν καταλαβαίνω Χριστό!"
