1. Class Times

The local course normally runs Friday 9-6 and Saturday 9-5. We have brief breaks for lunch and snacks throughout the day. The online version of the course runs in the evenings on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday and then 6 hours on Saturday.

2. What to Bring

There really isn't much required. We would recommend that you bring materials to take notes and a laptop computer if you have one. We can share the Powerpoint slides with you for your personal use and review. You don't even need any Bible software although we do recommend Logos Software. We do start reading portions of the New Testament, it will be displayed along with software aids on screen for everyone to see. If you do own some Bible Software please bring it since we will show you how we use these aids to help us with the original languages. Logos also normally allows us to offer discounts on various packages and add-ons during the event so you can get a good deal on upgrades to your original language resources. If you are bringing a laptop computer you may also want to bring a power strip to ensure that there are enough outlets for everyone.

You don't even need a textbook. We provide a lengthy syllabus.

3. What You Need To Learn Before Class

In order to make the most of our class time we do ask that you watch a couple videos prior to the course. The first is an introduction to the course and the second is a presentation of the Greek alphabet. It is important that you are familiar with the Greek alphabet prior to the course. The best way to do this is to work through the video on the alphabet a number of times and then start learning the vocabulary using the vocabulary pages we have online. We try to keep to the course Greek vocabulary down to about 125 words that you have to memorize. We do quickly go over most of these word in the course, but you will find the course much more productive if you already are familiar with them. You can see the vocabulary lists in the left sidebar of these webpages. You can hear these words by clicking on them and see an English gloss by hovering your cursor over them.

    Here is a list of these tasks.
  1. Watch the orientation video.
  2. Watch the alphabet training video.
  3. Learn the four groups of vocabulary.
