My name is Calvin, and I hail from the prairies of the sometimes chilly land of Canada.
In the fall semester of 2008 I began studying Biblical Greek in Bible School. While I passed second semester Greek the following spring, I did not get it to a terribly useful level of mastery, and for a couple of years afterwards I puttered about with it to little effect, finally setting it aside for a time. At the present, I am going through my textbook (Basics of Biblical Greek, 2nd Ed.) trying to maintain a pace of about 1 chapter a day to try recovering what I have forgotten and to progress beyond where I left the language at the end of that year of college. I have definitely found that I did myself a disservice when I was studying Greek in college in as much as I did not adequately learn the content of each chapter nor practice it effectively in the exercises (something I am now striving to do).
In my wanderings on the internet, I stumbled across this place, and it grabbed my interest as - unlike other language forums (such as those at how-to-learn-any-language.com) - this one focuses exclusively on my language of interest.
I look forward to participating in the discussions on this board.
