Thank you for the link which I read. Interesting. However, most of the dialogue centred on identifying whether Latin or Greek is more difficult, rather than the benefit of learning either of the languages before the other.
Any one have any thoughts on this?
Yeah, the threads often flow in a different way than it started. A few of the first posts show the point, however. It is just that Greek was being learnt quite late in the history of non-Greek western world when Latin was in constant use, thus textbooks were written in respect of Latin. But in the respect of difficulty, there's not much difference, or at least it is disputable, as the later part of the thread suggests.
