Well, I just completed my first over-the-phone Greek lesson with Esteban Vázquez and so far I’ve realized that my Greek is more dismal than I had realized. It’s easy when you have lexicons and other grammatical tools handy and are just blogging about different things, but when it comes to the real thing, it ain’t so easy. I also have to confess that hearing Vázquez speak Greek made me realize how horrible I (and quite honestly everyone else I’ve ever heard speak Greek) sounded. He’s truly a master. Nice fellow too, very patient with all my coughing (I’ve been coughing for weeks now, it sucks!) and ignorance. All in all it seems to have gone well.
Oh, and just in case people think that Vázquez is joking when he says he hates Wayne Grudem and heads up Anti-Grudemites International, he isn’t. He really can’t stand the guy. I had a nice laugh about that one. :)
