I liked some of your comments and just want to underline them:
>In Greek, because you are reading, you might
>spend hours on a sentence. Which is not really how the human mind learns
>After you have de-cyphered a chapter, be it in
>the NT, LXX, or other ancient greek text, go back and read it quickly, as
>you would a newspaper. Try reading it out loud. Because you've
>de-cyphered it you should now be able to read it with meaning.
. . .
>Also another idea is to read
>ahead a chapter or two at one shot, don't stop to look up words or pause
>decypher syntax. Just read. Then go back and do your de-coding. Then go
>back again and read as you would a newspaper.
>modern Greek pronounciation. I started doing that on the suggestion of
>B-Greekers and I have found that to be very helpful, very helpful. Just
>listening seems to have awaken a part of my brain to the learning of Greek
>that was not previously engaged. I find my self repeating to myself, bits
>and pieces of N.T. greek sentences a similar experience to when I was
>learning my two second living languages.
