I think that the Greek language is one of the most beautiful languages in the world, and it is a dream of mine to learn it.    what is a good place to start?
"At the Last Judgment I will not be asked whether I satisfactorily practiced asceticism, nor how many bows I have made before the divine altar. I will be asked whether I fed the hungry, clothed the naked, visited the sick, and the prisoner in his jail. That is all I will be asked." - Sv. Maria Skobotsova

I've asked that same question,Trevor, on this forum. So far NO ONE ON THIS FORUM has helped me.

http://greek-language.com/grammar/
http://www.e-sword.net/ ( I use this all the time to compare between Greek and Latin: just make sure to download the extra language Bibles)
www.textkit.com ( it has been a really good site for me to learn Latin, but the Greek courses seem to be very dull, extensive,old, and assume that you already know Latin grammar so well that they don't need to review Greek grammar with you).
