Your writer's studies of the ancient Greek language continue. I can now translate much basic Greek prose with the aid of a dictionary, including a good bit of the New Testament (which was originally written in ancient Greek). By simply learning how the language is pronounced and focusing on grammar and reading skills, progress in learning a foreign language is much, much faster than trying to learn to speak it (as an adult).
Books that I have for French and German reading state that about 180 hours of effort are needed. Diistributing that effort over 1/2 to 1 hour sessions works best. Thus you, too, can learn to read a foreign language as an adult in less than one year. Try it! Remember, use read-only mode.
