My first week of Greek class and I’ve already memorized the Greek alphabet, learned about diphthongs, nominative and accusative cases, and grammatical gender, and learned a few dozen vocabulary words. Not bad, considering I also had a bad case of the stomach flu this week.
But I’m happy to say that I’m feeling better, and while I am playing a bit of catch up on my assignments, I am actually really enjoying learning Greek! It is the first language (ok, other than English) that I’ve taken, and I’m not finding it as difficult as I thought it would be. And I’m especially excited about being able to read the Bible in Greek someday…and someday soon by the looks of the syllabus in this course! We sure do pack a lot o’ learning in these few short weeks of online courses.
So I’m off to bed to keep healing, and then I’m off and running with week 2 of Greek. And maybe I’ll even try out some of my new vocabulary at the Mediterranean Restaurant down the street this week…
