Are you learning Greek or Hebrew?

Thanks to Dave Black for pointing this new resource out. While there is some debate about the correct way to pronounce Biblical languages, all scholars agree that being able to speak and hear the language helps the student to learn the language better.

Here is a link to a site that provides a free download of the Greek NT in a audio file. They are also working on doing a audio file of the OT and have made some of Genesis available.

    I would call into question any argument that believes there is a ‘correct’ way to speak Koine Greek, if only because I’ve heard very different but very passionate positions and readings. My first Greek was given to me in the classroom by an Orthodox priest, and his thoughts were very different from those of a professor I’ve had who specializes in the Koine of Alexandria.

    That said, it’s definitely a boost to your reading ability if you can read the text aloud. Speaking of which, I have 41 lines of Virgil I have to memorize for a graded recital at 3PM this afternoon…yikes…back to work.

      I agree there isn’t one way to speak the language. I think within a class room environment, its better if every one pronounces it the same way. even if it may be wrong.
