Can you relate to Frank? Well then you're not alone. In fact there are a plethora of folks who can relate.
Indeed, for the many students who go through college or seminary taking Greek classes can seem daunting. Part of the reason for that is because they've seen so many others do it and have little to no payoff. Indeed, most of the pastors and preachers I know are incapable of engaging the Greek New Testament in any meaningful way. Sure, they might own an interlinear that they crack open every now and then but ultimately that doesn't really add up to anything substantive. In short, most preachers simply do not keep their Greek but rather they lose it. Keeping up with one's biblical languages seems like an impossible task for many. The weekly demands of the pastorate or the daily demands of family life and/or other types of jobs become reasons not to maintain the languages. Well, the Conversational Koine Institute can offer a remedy to that. How?
One of the great things about our online Greek classes is that they only require 1 hour a week. There is NO homework either. Yes, you read that correctly: 1 hour per week. That's right 1 hour out of 168 hours (= the # of hours in a week) using the Conversational Koine Institute's approach will help you not only "keep" your Greek but make it much more robust. In turn, this means that those seminary or college classes you took and the money you spent on them will not be for naught; they might actually keep paying dividends.
So, in addition to NO homework and only 1 hour per week, what else is so great about the Conversational Koine Institute? Well, I could offer many items here but let me just give three. First, you can do this all right from the comfort of your home, office or anywhere in the world. All you need is a computer and internet connection. Second, the cost is highly affordable. While college and seminary classes cost you thousands of dollars, you can take a class with CKI right now* for under $50. Third, CKI has connected with people from around the world. The Conversational Koine Institute has connected with students all over the United States, Canada, Russia, Brazil, India and more. This brings a very nice diversity to the classroom and allows you to build relationships with others.
