I know you just finished a Pharr group. What can you tell me about the pace that it went (too fast, too slow, etc) and what kind of weekly time commitment did it require? I'm interested, but I need to decide if I can devote enough time to it right now.
We did 2 lessons per week for the first while with occasional review weeks. After a while we did 1 lesson per week.
When I started, I had concerns about the pace.
I had worked through some of Pharr on my own before the group started so that made those lessons a bit easier. Homeric Greek was a new thing for me but I did have a bit of a (fragile) background in Koine.
It is my opinion that those who have not had any Greek before, will find 2 lessons per week to much. 1/wk is was quite managable and enjoyable. If every one in this group has had some Greek before, we can start with 2/wk, but as soon as someone lets us know that it is to much, we can slow down. I have not talked to Chad about this but I don't think he is very hard to get along with. I think it is more important to do some work on it every day and get very familiar with the material, than to rush through the book.
As to the time commitment: I spend approx. 1-2 hrs per day.
I think I am of average intelligence (what ever that is) so if someone has an above average intelligence, less than that may be fine.
