Signs of Interest?

What a first week it has been for the blog! My first real post went up last Thursday, and since then, we have had over 5000 views, including almost 1000 on our top day yesterday. That says to me that there’s a lot of interest out there in changing up Greek pedagogy and striving for real fluency in the language. If you want keep up with the discussion, make sure you subscribe to the RSS feed, or sign up using the button on the right of the page. Thanks for reading!

Thank you, all those who linked to the blog, especially οἱ δύο Ἰάκωβοι, James McGrath and Jim Davila.

Thank you, everyone who commented, as well as those who emailed me personally. Your interest in teaching for (and achieving for yourselves) Greek fluency is very encouraging and bodes well for the movement. Many have asked if I have resources to share for teaching this way. I do, and I plan to do a lot of posts in the future presenting them, but also a series of posts pointing out how many types of resources we need that we just don’t have—yet.

Stay tuned!

    σὺ εἶ μὲν οὖν μακάριος διότι πολλοὶ ἀνέγνωσαν τὸ βλογ σου. ελπίζω δ’ ὅτι ἀναγιγνώσκοντες πολλοὶ λαλήσουσιν Ἑλληνιστί. τὸ γὰρ λαλῆσαι καλόν ἐστιν. λέγω δὴ σε νέον Βυθ εἶναι. ἔρρωσο φίλτατε.
