The Greek language is almost completely gone. Because of popular culture, the Greek whistling language is being forgotten and unpracticed. We need the help of UNESCO to help preserve one of the very first Greek languages. PLEASE UNESCO we need your help to keep this language alive.
Sfyria is the world's rarest and most extinct language. The rare language will soon disappear since the last existing speakers will die soon. We need the help from UNESCO for that idea not to become a reality.
The whistling language, which locals call "Sfyria" from the Greek word Sfyrizo (whistle), is the unique characteristic of the mountain village of Antia, in Evia. We need the help of UNESCO so this language doesn't die off like other languages have.
One of Greece's best hidden secrets has been given centrestage on the BBC Travel website, which posted a feature on Antia, a tiny village in Evia, perched on Mount Ochi. The language that has been used for about 2,500 years, is at risk of being forgotten because of popular culture.
Far from the tourist havens, one Greek village is fighting to save its unique language. We need the funding from UNESCO to create classes to teach and save this language.
For about 2,500 years, residents of this mountainous village have used the language that only they understand. There are only six people left who can ‘speak’ it. We need to provide the funding and willingness to help those 6 people, that still know the language, teach hundreds of people so the language just doesn't become extinct.
