teaching coptic

edited December 1969 in Youth Corner
I am wondering if you guys would think it would be a good idea if someone who is absloutly good in coptic teaching the ones who don't know any coptic, coptic!

I am someone who doesn't know how to speak coptic, and i am like almost 20!

I would love for someone to teach me coptic :)

  • In terms of speaking Coptic, it is difficult. Not because the language is hard, in fact, it is easy. The problem is it is often taught with the intent of learning to translate only. This is the case, because sadly, it is not a commonly used language. As for just reading Coptic, I'm sure you can easily learn that with no problem. However, if you want to learn the language so that you can understand what goes on in church, there are various sources.

    1. www.stshenouda.com
    This is a great site with some very useful grammar which you should know.

    2. Consider finding someone in your church who knows how to understand Coptic and have him/her teach you

    Also, if I may, what city do you live in? I might know some resources around the area.
