Right now the biggest thing I'm struggling with is the alphabet. It is so different from both English and Spanish. I've been learning Spanish since third grade and I always found it to be similar to English, so it was easier to learn.
Greek is similar to English in that certain words are spoken the same. Where as in Spanish everything is said with an accent, Greek and English words are usually spoken in flat Yankee vowels. Since I don't think of Greek as being similar to English at all I'm having a hard time grasping that. I almost always end up switching into a Spanish accent.
After I conquer the alphabet I'm going to move onto verbs. That might be a while off because the alphabet has proven to be very tough. The letters are unlike anything I've ever seen and I struggle to write them out.
This semester I will also be working on my presentation/speech. I plan to incorporate how important it is to learn about other languages and cultures. I think that will give the presentation a little something extra.
So far I've been very happy with how my project is coming along and I'm hoping it continues to go well!
