Here in Hong Kong, I have not yet found any one learning classical Greek (though there are some learning New Testament Greek)

Hi bliss!
I don't think anyone else on this board is from Hong Kong, but I may be wrong of course. I'm sure there must be loads of people learning Greek in Hong Kong though, I mean it's such a huge city! :)
Have you just started to learn classical Greek, or have you been learning it for some time now?

I think there is only a handful of Hong Kong people who knows classical Greek, for they would not find it "rewarding", haha

I started learning New Testament Greek 9 years ago for two months (an intensive course), but lost interest after one or two years. I tried to pick it up again several times since then, but failed. Last year I made a come back again, this time in classical Greek

Welcome, Bliss!

Hong Kong, huh? I've always found myself fascinated by Hong Kong, without really knowing anything about it, except that it was somewhere near China. :oops:

I'm studying classical Greek, too, although I'm taking a hiatus from it just now so I can focus on French and Latin. I've found the alphabet my biggest hindrance; that and the fact that Greek isn't a romance language, where French and Latin and Spanish are.

Again, welcome!

Welcome!

I'm from Korea. Just a handful of people in the college would be studying Classical Greek in Korea, I would say. But there's a weirdo like myself. So, why not two, or three, or a lot of people hiding here and there? But on the other hand, why didn't they find out textkit yet? Well, there should be really few people learning it. :roll:
