Better Learning Languages by Reading through the New Testament in Those Languages

October 19, 2011

Because I have read through all the books that comprise the NT more than twenty times, I probably know the contents of the NT better than I do any other collection of books of comparable size. Based on that fact, I have been thinking that a good way to advance my abilities in other languages would be to read through the NT in them.

Because I have been tutoring Hebrew intensively in recent weeks, I think that this would be a good time to finally start reading through the NT in Hebrew. The New Testament in Hebrew and English by The Society for Distributing Hebrew Scriptures seems like it would be a good tool for doing so.

Besides English, Greek, and Hebrew, I have also studied Hindi, German, French, and Spanish in the past. As God directs, I would also like to read through the NT some day in each of these languages.

I’d appreciate hearing from anyone who has tried this approach to learning a language or improving in it.
