Three Levels to Mastering Greek
- Learn to read and pronounce the Greek Alphabet, then to pronounce Greek words. When a child can do this in English, he can begin to do this in Greek. After this is developed, a Greek-English Interlinear Bible may be useful in developing a feel for the Greek language itself.
- Learn to understand basic Greek vocabulary, look up words in the Greek lexicon, and recognize their part of speech and grammatical inflection. When a child can do this in English, he can begin to do this in Greek. This is generally more successful if one begins about age thirteen.
- Learn to understand and accurately translate most any passage out of the Greek New Testament without looking up more than a few words. This is the ultimate goal, and if it is pursued with diligence, it could be accomplished by age eighteen.
