While I was in grad school, just for fun, I decided to take a year of New Testament Greek. I wanted one course that would get me away from my music classes for a short while each week, and I really enjoyed the course, even though I didn't have a whole lot of time to study a non-major subject. In the years since grad school, I've tried to do some self-study in Koine Greek, and I've had varying degrees of success doing that. But I'm often on the lookout for resources to aid me in my continuing study of the original language of the New Testament. Which brings me to this video...
Yesterday, I was searching for some NT Greek resources on the website of our local library, and I found a course in Ancient Greek on hoopla, which is a service that our library offers. On hoopla, you can check out ebooks, videos, and music for a limited download. The guy that presents the course seems knowledgeable enough, but his style of addressing the camera, and speaking to his virtual students is very entertaining to me. Here's the first installment of the course, which I found on YouTube, that demonstrates this teacher's unique style (meanwhile, if you don't know it, this video will teach you the Greek alphabet):
