Interview

Daniel and Tonya interviewed Hebrew teacher Karyn Traphagen on their Hebrew and Greek Reader blog.  Karyn gives her advice on teaching and learning Hebrew, and on gardening, at her Boulders 2 Bits site.  Be sure to check out the “Hebrew Resources” page, if you are learning Hebrew.

Karyn is living in North Carolina; it’s a bit warmer there, so her tomato plants are ahead of mine.  But I’ll catch up by July, deo volente.

  1. Thanks for linking to the interview. I hope you will post some photos of your tomatoes later this season. I’m enjoying poking around your site.

  2. I will probably post some tomato photos at “Alternation” (alterfaith/wordpress.com) later this summer. I tend to put more personal and miscellaneous stuff there–and I post infrequently here; although I will be adding a few pages here over the next couple of months.

    I did enjoy the interview; and I’ve been thinking for a long time about what is the best way to teach “dead” languages. When I was in the classics department at KU about 20 years ago, I learned that they had just phased out a “conversational Latin” approach. Evidently some of the students really got into it, togas and all, but some people in administration became afraid it was becoming a cult.
