Yeah... annoying isn't it. And it's not just the breathing marks; the accents have disappeared as well. It just can't handle polytonic Greek. (Not that my Greek is that good, anyway. )

Knowing Latin has helped me with anatomy, I'll allow that much. But I did GCSE years ago and I've forgotten most of it. I couldn't really translate that paragraph Radagasty wrote; although I got the gist of things.
Joey is doing Classics, so you'd expect him to know his ancient languages though! (although not necessarily Greek)
Overall though, I'd say unless you are exceptional at something they're going to want you for, I'd just mention your extra-curricular activities, to show that you do them - there's not much real need for any great depth.

Φεῦ! Ὡς ὑν ἀνομοιοῦ ἄρχοντος ἄρχόμεθα. Ἡ γλῶσσα τῶν Λατῖνων ἐστί ἡ γλῶσσα πολυμαθίας.
I hope it works. To all you classicists out there, how is my Greek?

And before you criticise my Latin translation skills (which yes aren't good)...i'm a SCIENTIST.
