What firmware are you on? Are you rooted?

Here is how the Samsung keyboard looks for me inside the Samsung SMS app on firmware MJ7 (4.3) + the hack to enable extended symbols. In the Samsung keyboard there seems to no longer be an option to switch languages when you swipe over space (and I also use swiping as input method) but you can see a small button in the bottom-left (just to the right of the SYM key) and when you short-press on that I switch languages. The "swipe over space" option is still present in other keyboards and might be even a hidden option for the Samsung keyboard (but you might need root).

The only other idea that I have is to long-press on space. And eventually on the button that is two places left from space - after a long-press you might get to see a list and the button like a globe is the one that switches between languages.

Also check what other version you have on English and Greek after the > sign in settings - that part is not present in my firmware so extra settings might be there.

Also the language availability might depend on the app itself - so also do a test in the Samsung default SMS app.
