I've never been to Southern Albania, are there really cities or towns that are majority Greek speaking?

Would I be able to get around speaking only Albanian and having zero knowledge of Greek in these areas?

The description just says old man Djuko with a room full of proud Malesors. I have no clue what is going on in that video and that dude in the first half sounds like he's speaking Serbian.

Are these proud Malesors catholic?
lmao I can't believe the reading comprehension of some of you guys.

The guy in the first video sounds like he is speaking Serbian because he is speaking Serbian lmao. The guy in the second video is an Albanian guy in Michigan just saying random Serb words as a joke about the Albanian people back in Montenegro listening to the speech. You can literally read right above me saying that it is the SECOND video not the FIRST video lol.

I figured the video of a speech given in Serbian to a room full of Albanians would speak for itself. My family is from the Republic of Albania so the idea of a Serb coming into our house and giving a speech to our family in Serbian of all languages would be really fucking weird. I guess this shit is normal for other Albanians though :?
I perfectly understood why the guy in the second video was doing. I just had no idea what was happening in the first video. Some context would have helped. Can anyone translate what the Serb was saying?

And I'm not surprised if they're from Montenegro. They are the biggest sellouts and many of them have assimilated to just being Montenegrin. The catholic ones that is. I honestly can't even distinguish them as alot of them have last names with "vic" (their last names weren't even changed by Yugoslav authorities like Kosovars and Macedonians) and they all cross identify as Albanian/Montegrin.
Damn, how are they sellouts? Montengros and fyromians might be worse than serbs when it comes to minorities rights. And I don't know what the first person is saying but I think he's former Monte pm Gjukanovic, he's a crook. So no wonder albos might like him.

It's funny bosnians in montenegro claim the likes of jakup ferri and ali pashe gucia nowdays though.

The only cities where you find Greek speakers are Saranda and Gjirokastra, but that's definitely a minority. Outside of that you'll find Greek speaking villages in Himara, Dropull (Gjirokaster county), Delvine and Sarande. I don't believe you'll have any problem speaking Albanian only but have never been in any of these villages myself. I went to Dhermi, a greek speaking village, in the Summer of 2011 and barely heard any Greek. LedZep may give you a better answer since he hails from one those villages I think.

Lmfao wtf. There's only a couple of villages (not cities) that have majority Greek speakers, and they all speak Albanian as well. With an accent, but you can understand them. You're not going to find any places where people can't speak Albanian.
