Grammatically, it's so different from English, and the worst part is not having an idea of how to pronounce the vocabulary, what with their accents and everything. And accents are pretty terrible, too - I'm not quite sure what difference they make, and the textbook I'm using (Essentials of New Testament Greek) doesn't cover it.
I've never used Essentials but I've heard some complain that it is too sparse when it comes to explanation and detail. Perhaps that's part of what is tripping you up.

Have you thought about which text you'd like to work through for Hebrew?
In college, we used Seow's grammar. I've also got a copy of Weingreen and loads of resources for modern Hebrew.
