How much do you all review?

Hi all
I am at chapter 19, chapter 20 looks intense. Back to my question. I have been constantly reviewing the vocab throughout the book as I go on.

Intensive Biblical Greek Summer Course

I would like to learn Biblical Greek, but I am not close to an institution that teaches it. I would like to go someplace for a summer to do an intensive course. I would also like to receive undergraduate credit for it. Does anyone know of such a program?
