Also when you want to skip the z you probably want to apply German 
pronunciation. I guess it's hard to tell for Grek if you can just skip 
the z ;)

Actually I have a similar problem at the moment with the visa. Not so 
much with pronunciation, but with spelling. Non-Germans tend to simplify 
the รถ (o umlaut) to a plain o, while it actually must be oe. If I don't 
get into the US at the end, you know why ;)
