This is the approach I was taught 25 years ago by one or two of Bruce
Waltke's disciples, professors who had recently done their doctoral studies
under Waltke's direction.

For a lot of people this is the only practical thing to do, read it in your
own language. However, I would hold out a carrot on string for the really
hard core language student, by claiming that this kind of reading can and
should be done in the original languages. Yes it may take you 10-15 years to
get there but it is possible and it is desirable to do it in NT Greek.
