I had once heard that if a person used an interlinear and read every day for 3 years, he would become proficient. I'll be interested to hear how it goes for you. Keep us updated in the "Teaching & Learning" section of this forum.

I still cannot answer that from the greek. I worked through about five beginning grammar books, difficulties noted that the grammar books typically had no answers to their exercises to help self independent learners. I am spending about 2 hours a day reading the new and old testament. Many times I don't fully understand what I read, so I underline the words I don't know, then go to another interlinear New testament and check my understanding of the verse, I'm slowly getting better, I'm on my sixth read through of the new testament. I'm also working through brentons lxx, finding it harder and much more underlining of new vocabulary and sometimes i note, that I understood little, but I keep on reading anyway.
I am really looking forward to writing with other people with an interest in God's word, and being able to ask lots of greek questions. My computer is a kindle fire.
