Is this equal to one year of Hebrew seminary and one year of Greek seminary level? Also, does anyone have experience with the courses and want to share if it is worth getting it or not? Wondering if it is better to go this route over the Zondervan lectures and books in Logos

Currently working through HB101, but the Greek course has not shipped yet to know anything about it. Futato's course so far is like my Hebrew course I took in college for one year.

The Zondervan resources you mention has Mounce for Greek which is the standard in my circles and it's what I used in college. I did not use Zondervan's Hebrew in college because I used a local professor at Southern Baptist Theological Seminary. My Hebrew professor was one of his students so naturally I used his textbook.

Thanks for the feedback Matt. How do you like the Futato course thus far?

If a Seminary semester is 16 weeks and a course is at LEAST 3 credit hours per Semester, this would equal minimally 96 hours of classroom instruction plus 288 hours (3 hours personal work for each hour of classroom contact). The MobileEd is only 10 hours of Hebrew and 17 hours of Greek. So prepare to do a LOT of individual study if you want equivalence to Seminary language courses. There are no shortcuts to language mastery.

Wasn’t really looking for a shortcut. Rather the best approach

Keith, I don't like or dislike Futato's course because I have already learned Hebrew in college so this is a refresher for me. Could someone learn the language? Maybe, if they spend the hours learning it. Already stated, no shortcuts and I agree. But I truly believe there is more than one professor that can teach a biblical language to certain people. The issue is if the student really wants to learn the language? It's hard work, but very fulfilling.
