In March 2012, some of my Greek students wrote ‘Letters to the Editor’ about their perception of contemporary life in Greece – these are some excerpts ‘the majority of Greek people is blameless,’ ‘Greece deserves help,’ ‘the Greeks have been misrepresented,’ ‘we will overcome this crisis,’ ‘please do not humiliate our country’ ‘help us stand on our own feet,’ ‘Greece will find a way to overcome,’ ‘Greece has a positive side,’ ‘the Greek civilisation also has a bright side,’ ‘we deserve another chance,’ ‘A new image has appeared in Athens..’ ‘Greeks are inventive and hard-working,’ ‘it seems catastrophic here in Greece,’ and ‘the issue is not violence but misery’
