My study material was the German Gottwein course
that includes translation exercises from German into Ancient Greek. These exercises contributed a lot to my motivation because I wanted to be able to produce Greek texts, and the exercises helped me keep an eye on my progress of being able to write Greek. I believe that if I had used common German study material like Kantharos (a book used at German schools), I would never have got that far.
From time to time, naturally, I too was confronted with sentences that I did not understand at all. Whenever I was just too frustrated to go on, I spent some time reading Aesopian fables (my favourites
) without worrying too much about details until I felt better and felt I could go on.
