Spurgeon’s College Commendation in Biblical Languages

This course is for anyone who wishes to learn either biblical Greek and/or Hebrew. Both languages can be studied via distance (online) learning. The aim of the course(s) is to give people a solid grounding in one or both of the biblical languages that will enable them to read biblical texts in their original language and access suitable resources to deepen their understanding of these texts. You have the option to take the course and do the language assessments, or to audit the course, which means you work through the material but do not do the language assessments at the end of the unit.
