Thoughts on Keeping your Greek
I'm up early this morning, as usual. Today it is so I can practice the indicative forms of λύω for a quiz I'll be taking in a few hours. As I write them out again and again, I find myself wishing I had focused more on keeping my Greek polished between undergrad and seminary.
Louis at Church Connection blogged on this very topic over the weekend. He has been using Keep Your Greek: Strategies for Busy People by Constantine R. Carter to refresh his Greek, and has been finding it a breath of fresh air.
In Louis’ words “Campbell doesn’t promise an easy path but he does promise steps that can help bring back the language you once spent so much time learning. I especially enjoyed the emphasis on doing a little every day rather than thinking I have to spend hours and hours in order to make any difference. Don’t underestimate the power of persistence.”
When my studies in Greek conclude Keep your Greek may be a volume I need to pick up. Because learning Greek is hard, but keeping it can be even harder if you are not intentional about it.
