Course Objectives & Outcomes
Lay a solid foundation in Biblical Greek
Even if you only take the first immersion class, you will have a solid foundation that will help you as you continue to study Biblical Greek.
Learn Biblical Greek communicatively
Learn the language through interacting in it with stories, skits, role-plays, and Total Physical Response activities. Immerse yourself in Biblical Greek communicatively.
Read the New Testament without translation
Starting with short stories with high frequency vocabulary, you will build up to reading the text of the NT without translation.
Re-wire your brain to think Greek
We focus on the structure of the language as much as vocabulary. This ensures long-term retention and the ability to continually amass new vocabulary.
Learn grammar retrospectively
You will learn grammar, but first you will learn Greek. Then you will look back at what you have learned and study the grammar.
Use discourse grammar in exegesis
Understand grammar in the whole context. Recognize why biblical authors chose the words and phrases that they used as you engage in well-rounded exegesis.

Introducing Flex Tuition
more students = less tuition
Flex Tuition is a system that lowers the tuition of every student based on the number of students enrolled per Level. This basically means that for every additional person that signs up for any given Level, the tuition will “flex” down for everybody by a certain percent. For instance, if only 6 people sign up for Level 1A (the first immersion) then each student pays $600 in tuition for Level 1A. However, if the class is maxed out at 20 students then each person only pays a total of $432 for Level 1A and $2160 for the full two years. So bring your friends and we all win!
- 6 Students 100% 100%
- 10 Students 92% 92%
- 15 Students 82% 82%
- 18 Students 76% 76%
- 20 Student max 72% 72%
Biblical Greek Program Structure & Tuition
Structure & Tuition
more students = $$ savings
Sign up for as much or as little of the Biblical Greek Program as you want to participate in. However, every Level has the previous Levels as prerequisites.
When you sign up for Year 1, you are signing up for two immersion courses and one online course. Those two immersion courses and that one online course are roughly equivalent to two college semesters. These three components constitute one full year of Greek. Year 2 is similar to Year 1. By signing up for Year 2 you are signing up for two online courses and one immersion course at the end.
With Flex Tuition everyone pays less as enrollment increases.
For instance, if 6 students enroll, everyone pays 100% of the starting tuition.

What Our Students Say
I’ve studied NT Greek using the “grammar-translation” method for years, but this communicative course was fantastic for me. This method enables students to actually internalize the language and think of it as a real language, not as a mathematical code to be cracked. I highly recommend it for everyone–from beginners to those who’ve studied Greek grammars and done parsing exercises for years. Five stars.
The communicative language-learning approach is not only effective for the learning of modern languages but also for ancient languages such as Koine Greek. Through intentional “child’s play” and storytelling, the student interacts with the language on multiple fronts, including listening, reading, and speaking. Instead of laborious grammars and endless paradigms, “normal” interaction becomes the means of entering the language of the New Testament. This does not mean that the course does not have sessions dedicated to grammar points; rather, grammar is largely taught in the context of speaking Greek. This method makes the learning of Biblical Greek accessible to all, regardless of age, who are willing to engage in the rigors of language learning.
