Greek class

In the middle of Athens there is a school where a few of us are learning how to navigate the Greek language. The Athens Centre is now my 'home' for three intense weeks of language lessons every morning. I have a nice walk up the hill once downtown, and time to practice all my new vocab on the bus into town!

I'm in the beginning level, and it is harder than I would have imagined actually. Who knew there was that much vocab to learn!!

The Centre is beautiful though, and we have a nice spot for coffee breaks and study sessions. The roof even offers a view of the Acropolis, to remind us all of the classic beauty of the country and it's language - when the verbs cause us to forget!

My class is mostly foreigners with several other languages under their belt. In fact, often I feel as if we are progressing quickly because we all know too much! They are a fun group to learn with though!

So, is it true that having learned one other language its easier to learn another? and, will this enable you to read the Greek NT? Looking forward to a SB's session when you get home. By the way, when exactly do you arrive?
