This morning was my first class of Modern Greek II at Americanos College. I never took Modern Greek I so I was a little nervous this morning. But God is so gracious. It seems that the international students don’t come to class the first couple of weeks, so I ended up having a hour and half private lesson. The teacher took me through the first 2 chapters of the book. The class is actually on chapter 20 so I have a lot of catching up to do, but the teacher assured me that my previous knowledge of German will be a big help and I shouldn’t have much trouble. I also have a friend to help me.
Learning German was relatively easy. I had taken two years of it in high school and with just two months at the Goethe and the help of friends I was communicating pretty well. But now I am 4 years older and closer to 40 than 30. I have had no previous Greek. I’m interested in seeing how my brain handles it.
