I'm thinking about learning koine Greek. How feasible is learning NT Greek without a good understanding of English grammar?

Hi Richardb,

I think studying Greek will improve your English grammar. For me, having inflected endings to study helped me to understand English grammar better than I ever understood it in high school (and I'm a native English speaker). Dan

I'll second that. With only 2 chapters of Wheelock's Latin under my belt, I feel my grasp of English grammar is better than ever.
