The Greek To Me course is not a “basics” Biblical Greek class. It is comprehensive!
Other courses teach you “basics” and translations does not occur to well into the course if at all. With the Greek To Me course you will be practicing translation of full sentences and short biblical stories by the end of chapter 3.
Unfortunately the answer is “it depends”. It depends on how much time and focus you put into your studies. As a reminder the course covers 2 full semesters (32 weeks) of seminary level instruction. If you’ve ever taken a 2 semester class in a higher learning environment this will give you an idea of the time required.
For students in Middle School to High School we would recommend the course be spread across two full years.
Since language is always in a state of change, it might be confusing to start with modern Greek, for it is not the same as biblical Greek. Pronunciation is likewise different. It might be more helpful to first work with biblical Greek and thoroughly master the basics of New Testament Greek, some exegesis, and then, to work with modern Greek. Simply, it could be confusing to try and work with two different versions of Greek, separated by 2000 years.

The Greek To Me textbook is a physical hard copy textbook. We feel the hard copy book provides students with the chance to highlight, take notes and get hands on with the learning process.
