Students of this course will learn to recognize and pronounce basic Greek vocabulary and translate simple sentences in the Gospel of John. Your student will learn or refresh English grammar terminology, concepts, and usage. He or she will learn Greek words that have English cognates while gaining insight into the original language of the New Testament. See syllabus for expanded description.
