Re: Learning Greek on one's own

The “author” of the Greek Tutor multimedia is Dr. Ted Hildebrandt, and I noticed on the website http://faculty.gordon.edu/hu/bi/Ted_Hildebrandt/ Under the tab: Mastering New Testament Greek, - that the Textbook, Workbook, brief answer book, animated videos and Greek audio, which is freely available...

Re: κατα in Gal. 1:13

Carl Conrad wrote in another thread: every conceivable approach must be made to bringing the student in one way or another, willy-nilly, to thinking in ancient Greek, to get beyond simply "decoding" ancient Greek texts So, following what Jonathan Robie wrote here in the "What does this text mean?" t...

sparse vs detailed

This thread, or topic, or whatever it's called is getting pretty complicated - so I'm experimenting with changing the "subject" while still replying within the topic/thread. One way to categorize introductory textbooks is "sparse" vs "detailed" - referring mostly to the grammatical explanations but ...

Re: Learning Greek on one's own

Do you find that you learned as much in the classroom after you had worked solo for so long? Were you better prepared for Hebrew after exercising the discipline to learn Greek? Having gone through the gauntlet do you have any suggestions, study routines or obvious pitfalls you could share? Oh, bein...

Learning Greek on one's own

I'm curious whether anyone on the forum is just in the very early stages of learning Greek independently, e.g. working through a beginning grammar book, or learning the alphabet and sounding out words, or perhaps using an interlinear Bible. I started out that way myself, in the early 1990s, using in...

Is pronouncing Greek out loud important for learning Greek?

I'm responding to the first query, "Is vocalizing the Greek words and sentences important?" being mindful that this is the Beginners Forum. My answer is YES, for at least these reasons: (1) Pronouncing Greek words and sentences out loud will help you learn faster and more thoroughly. You should list...

I joined b-greek for the first time back in the 1990s, not sure when exactly. At that time I had been fumbling along with interlinears and the old Parsons Bible Tutor program. Eventually someone told me I should work my way through a grammar book, which I did, and I also attended seminary, picked up...
