Learning Greek

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.

    German and English come from same branch.. so that was relatively easy. Your brain could find similarities in words and grammar..
    Greek is another song!! :)) BUT the more you know languages the easier is to learn another one!

    am proud of you 🙂
