Many textbooks make learning Greek a slow, painful process.

Drawing upon over 40 years of teaching Greek, Ezra Project courses make things as simple as possible for learners, without sacrificing accuracy.  

every course on this site is designed to give you a fast start & a strong foundation.

Most textbooks in beginning Greek give explanations of the grammar, followed by exercises (usually sentences to translate).  Our courses move beyond mere lecture and provide students with a simple but powerful system of interactive elements: 

  • Questions and answers after every explanation - to make sure that you understand the concept.
  • Practice exercises with the answers right there on the page - so that you will know immediately whether you got it right!
  • Carefully sequenced review exercises.  When you first learn a concept, you will review it often.  As it becomes more deeply embedded in your mind, you review less frequently but you do come back to it often enough to ensure that you don't forget it.
  • A project each lesson that takes you into the Greek New Testament - starting in the very first lesson!
