Learning Greek- New Testament or Classical?

I am considering learning ancient greek, with the ultimate goal of being able to tackle the works of the well-known greek writers (Plato, the playwrights, and possibly Aristotle)<br />I have heard that New Testament Greek is far less complicated than the Attic Dialect used by later authors.<br />I have never read the New Testament, and would be interested to read it in its original language.<br />If I were to learn New Testament Greek first, how ...

H&Q anyone?

May I ask who else here is working from Hansen & Quinn's Greek: An Intensive Course, and how far you've reached? <br /><br />I've just finished Unit 8 myself, but am rather hoping that I can get through the rest of it with a 'classmate' or two. :)

Episcopus going to Oxford

Not that it's very important but it's cool anyhow. I thought that this was going a little off-topic.<br /><br />However for me I must learn faster. I am going on a "elite pupils [from deprived area!)" (but we're not really elite) visit to Oxford University.

Earthquake in Japan

I'm really glad to hear that not too many people were seriously hurt; their buildings must be really stable to survive such a quake. <br />My own experiences with this natural disaster are very sad ones indeed and hearing of earthquakes in the news always brings back memories.

H&Q Unit 2

Could someone look over these English to Greek translations for me, please? I'm particularly interested in getting the accents right. The themes for this unit were: Active Present, Imperfect, Future, and Aorist indicative tenses, Active Present and Aorist infinitives, and subject-verb agreement.<br /><br />1. You used to send gifts from the market place to the gods of the island.<br />2. Did you (pl.) order Homer to free the five men in the house or not?<br ...

Going English

Tentatively I'll be in England this December - around London mostly, although (if I'm called in for interview) I'd have a week or so in Oxford... anyway, I was wondering if anyone else here might be in town around then - perhaps we could meet up? ;)

Blurry

Umm, either because of a blurry screen or a blurry page, or perhaps both, I can't see what the Greek for "son" is supposed to be...is it upsilon, iota, omicron, stigma, or is it omega, omicron, stigma? I'm guessing the first one just because it makes more sense...
