    Cool. Free Greek Lessons. Learning ancient Greek may seem difficult in the beginning but like all things its probably not as hard as it appears to be. If you ever wanted to learn Greek, and if you cant go to school then this seems like a good place to start . And its free.

    Note: there are two links here, the first one is from an English speaking gentleman (AssyrianLanguage's channel) and he seems easier to understand. But both links contain several videos, all of them should be helpful.

    They didn't use Erasmian! I'm pleasantly surprised. Erasmian pronunciation is an abomination.

    More recent archeological discoveries (misspelled inscriptions included) have evidenced the homogeneity of vowel pronunciation unlike the Erasmian system and like the modern Greek. No-one can say for sure precisely how these vowels sounded in their spoken form, but does demonstrate that Erasmian distinctions are not authentic.

    As long as i can learn to read it then i don't need to speak it exactly like the ancient Greeks spoke, and no one seems sure exactly how they sounded anyway it seems.

    I am doing just fine with biblos.com.

    I do not need more distractions. If I were to learn classical Greek I would only get argued with. Therefore I can find no real value in it.

    So, what is the problem? Pronunciation does not affect meaning.

    Yes but i can get that already with the interlinear scripture analyzer and google.


    Its a good distraction though, it distracts me from GT and concentrates more on scripture
