2 weeks in…

Thought it would be a good time to update you on how college is going after almost two weeks of Greek intensive.

Greek has been a hard slog, exciting, but still hard. Early this week I couldn’t help but think that it was all a bit beyond me. Learning verbs, as well as all the other vocab we have learnt was maxing out my brains ability to store new information. Then yesterday everything clicked, almost.

I’m a practical kind of person, which means that I work best when I’m actually doing what I am learning. Which is what we started doing yesterday. Yesterday we started doing some translations of whole sentences, from scratch. It was such a relief to be able to see where different words fitted in to the sentence. It was also nice to see that all the formulas that I had been working on perfecting was actually leading to something more tangible. Remembering most of the vocab was nice too.

So we have one more day of intensive to go, no doubt we will learn more tomorrow. So Greek is proving to be the challenge I thought it would be, but it is also more enjoyable than I thought it would be too.
