Re: Why not start with modern Greek?

Let me just add two quick points to the discussion. 1) My ideal 3-year curriculum would be as follows: Year 1: concurrent Beginners' Modern Greek and Beginners' Koine Greek as separate classes (both taught communicatively, but perhaps at 2/3 pace since you are taking both) summer between year 1 and ...

Re: Why not start with modern Greek?

I agree with a lot of what has been said above, but I just want to make a few points below that I think will be helpful... It's obviously the same situation with Hebrew. Learning modern Hebrew will only assist in learning biblical Hebrew, but learning modern Hebrew is not sufficient for proficiency ...

Re: Colloquia of the Hermeneumata Pseudodositheana
