Hi, I'm new here.
What would you suggest reading? I'm 3/4 of the way through Black's beginner book. I also have the workbook but haven't used it much, as it's a little... much. I have a Greek NT. I'm not all that bright.
Jeff, the formula is 90% perseverance 10% brightness, so that if you are at the 10th percentile or above for brightness, you're good.
The more you do, the better you get. Finish Black. Do everything in the workbook. Then sit down and begin reading your GNT. As I mentioned somewhere else, I like starting students in Mark, then Luke-Acts, then a Pauline epistle or 2, then back to John... Reading extra-biblical Greek such as Lucian of Samasota or Epictetus is very beneficial too.
