Greek influence on English speech patterns?

I have a character who speaks Greek and English natively. I'm wondering if there are any ways Greek would influence his English speech patterns, like unusual word order or something. I'm not going to write a phonetic accent. He primarily speaks Greek with his parents and some family friends and English elsewhere.

It's set in the modern US. I've googled Greek accent, Greek & English code-switching, and Greeklish and not come up with much.

Edit: sorry about the weird title
