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/ 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.
