IS-211, Greek I
Greek I is a four credit course that immerses the student in the grammar, vocabulary, and syntax of the New Testament. This course lays the foundation for the student to continue reading and analyzing the Greek New Testament. Students have 25 lessons to complete. Each lesson has an assignment, a vocabulary quiz , and a grammar quiz. There are no exams. The class is based on the inductive method of William Rainey Harper and Robert Dick Wilson.

Assignments: As each assignment is completed, the student uploads it to PRTS’s online course management system. The instructor is notified of this upload and corrects the assignment. The student makes the corrections that the instructor points out. When this process is finished, the assignment is marked “passed”. Each assignment has four sections:
- The first is the translation of the verses from John. Each lesson has two or more such verses, and lesson notes (e.g. lesson 8) have been prepared to assist the student with this translation. These lesson notes are all available online from the PRTS Language Wiki.
- The second is a translation of Greek text (not from the NT) into English.
- The third is a translation of English text into Greek.
- The fourth is a section of sentence diagramming.
Grammar Quizzes: The grammar quizzes are based on section A above. They are graded as is with no retakes allowed.
Vocabulary Quizzes: The vocab quizzes are online quizzes. The words are taken directly from Basics of Biblical Greek.
