It is so hard to learn Greek: it’s complex grammar, hundreds and hundreds of new words, mouth acrobatics and new rhythm. Many lessons cover topics which are, in reality, irrelevant, since we would use a fluent Greek speaker for critical decisions. It seemed to be necessary to learn so much just to get nowhere. Compounding this, 5 year old Greek kids speak it without hesitation. They don’t talk about critical topics, and they do make mistakes with their grammar, but they don’t care – people understand them anyway! So let’s learn from them. They don’t do jargon. They play and learn. They use a smaller range of words and guess the rest! Learn to sing Greek translations of worship songs that you know in English. Learn the important words, and pick up the rest gradually. As you sing along to the songs in Greek, you will be blessed and encouraged. The music gives the rhythm and your mouth will learn to make the new sounds. With this foundation, you are then confident to pick up new words from other songs and contexts. Just like a child.
