Keeping Up with Greek

I really wish I was taking a Greek class or, at very least, was sitting in on one. I found it so much simpler to go to class and learn, do some homework, and have someone to ask questions of (and to hear other questions that I had not thought of yet). It was very nice.

Now that I’m self-teaching/keeping up with the Greek I already have, it’s much more difficult. The forward motion of a semester that pushes you to the edge and pulls you back again is lost. In it’s place is sheer willpower; willpower that is sometimes a little more sheer than I’d like.

  1. It is doable. Maybe for encouragement read “A Minister and His Greek New Testament” by Robertson or “Using New Testament Greek in Ministry” by Dave Black.

    I would recommend going through an entire chapter of a grammar and all the exercises every week day.

  2. Another idea, you could offer a free course, whether through a church or elsewhere. This then gives you the joy of introducing others to Greek, and is one of the best way to learn and keep polished yourself. I just began this in my church, and to my suprise, had about 13 people respond, many of them children (who are learning VERY fast).

    • I’ve thought about this in the recent past. I’m just not sure now is the right time to pursue it at my church (since I just joined). I don’t want to come in both guns blazing as if I’m something more than I am. Perhaps this Fall though I could do something in that direction.
