Weekly Activities

After the Orientation Week, each week consists of the same basic schedule of graded activities, for a total of 10 hours of required work per week. If you have not studied an inflected language before (e.g., Latin, German, Russian) you should expect to spend 12 hours per week.

This course will prepare you to read New Testament Greek after one semester, although if you wish to be reading with good basic fluency, you will need to put in additional work beyond the required assignments (for example, studying more vocabulary, based on the New Testament frequency lists).

The required assignments are all based on material covered in N. Clayton Croy's Primer of Biblical Greek.

For more detailed information about dates and times, check the Weekly Schedule page.
