About our classes
Words of Honey regularly offers courses in Beginning and Intermediate Biblical Hebrew for adults who want to study the Tenakh (Old Testament) in its original language. The two courses combined provide students with the equivalent of a first – year university – level language course.
We will offer Beginning Koine Greek for students wishing to study the New Testament in its original language if we have a quorum of at least five serious students.
Each course runs two semesters, fall and then spring. The fall semester begins near the last week of August. The spring semester ends around the first week of June.
Each course utilizes a blend of online learning activities & assignments with once-a-week face-to-face meetings. The Hebrew courses use a textbook/workbook – based curriculum and the Greek course uses a fully online curriculum.
Classes are each limited to 15 adults, ensuring a small student – teacher ratio. The classes are academically robust and require at least three and a half hours of homework per week. Cost for classes is $60 per semester.
