I want to make a cv with Greek and English language. The problem is that the english appear with Greek font. Here is a short example.

\documentclass[a4paper, 12pt, a4paper]{moderncv}  

\usepackage[english, greek]{babel}

\usepackage[utf8x]{inputenc}

\moderncvstyle{casual} 

\moderncvcolor{green}  

\usepackage[scale=0.75]{geometry}

\name{Πέτρος}{Μουρούζης}

\title{Βιογραφικό}   

\address{Κωνσταντίνου Καραμανλή 77}{54642}{Θεσσαλονίκη}

\phone[mobile]{697.4936.202}   

\phone[fixed]{2310.911.890}                    

\email{mr.mourouzis@gmail.com} 

\homepage{www.mourouzisdental.gr} 
\begin{document}

Example of english language with greek font

Having \usepackage[english, greek]{babel} means that greek babel settings are the default for the whole document. Since greek option sets/switches font encoding to LGR, before writing in English you should set/change babel context to english (will automatically switch font encoding to T1). You can use \selectlanguage{...}, \foreignlanguage{...}{...} and similar babel's commands (check the babel's docs).

For example...

\documentclass[a4paper, 12pt, a4paper]{moderncv}
\usepackage[english, greek]{babel}
\usepackage[utf8x]{inputenc}
\moderncvstyle{casual}
\moderncvcolor{green}
\usepackage[scale=0.75]{geometry}
\name{Πέτρος}{Μουρούζης}
\title{Βιογραφικό}
\address{Κωνσταντίνου Καραμανλή 77}{54642}{Θεσσαλονίκη}
\phone[mobile]{697.4936.202}
\phone[fixed]{2310.911.890}
\email{mr.mourouzis@gmail.com}
\homepage{www.mourouzisdental.gr}

\begin{document}
\makecvtitle

\section{Eκπαίδευση}
\selectlanguage{english}
\cvitemwithcomment{2013-2018}{PhD in Operative Dentistry}{Aristotle University of Thessaloniki}
\cvitemwithcomment{2011-2014}{MSc in Operative Dentistry}{Aristotle University of Thessaloniki}
\cvitemwithcomment{2002-2007}{B.Sc in Dentistry}{Aristotle University of Thessaloniki}
\cvitemwithcomment{1998-2002}{B.Sc in Physical Education}{Aristotle University of Thessaloniki}

\selectlanguage{greek}
\section{Ξένες Γλώσσες}
\cvitemwithcomment{Γλώσσα}{Αγγλικά}{Επίπεδο C2}
\end{document}

Also, there is nothing special about moderncv in this context. Your issue is simply writing the multiscript and multilingual document in proper way.

Kind regards, Ivan

First of all, avoid utf8x. Then, mark the parts you want in English.

For the email and web address, an indirect method has to be used, because \textlatin conflicts with hyperref trying to make links out of them.

\documentclass[a4paper,12pt,a4paper]{moderncv}
\usepackage[scale=0.75,footskip=60pt]{geometry}

\usepackage[english, greek]{babel}
\usepackage[utf8]{inputenc}
\usepackage{etoolbox}

\moderncvstyle{casual}
\moderncvcolor{green}

\newrobustcmd{\emailaddress}{\textlatin{mr.mourouzis@gmail.com}}
\newrobustcmd{\webaddress}{\textlatin{www.mourouzisdental.gr}}

I set footskip in order to avoid the warning it is set to a too small value.
