that too is part of a picture.

maybe I wrote a note last year, too.

In any case, I regularly ask Greek teachers to
compare their Greek to any other language that they are fluent in and that
they learned as an adult.
If they are satisfied, then I have nothing to offer/say.

If they do not speak and use another language, for comparison,
then I just ask them to start praying in Greek every morning.
The experiences will self-teach, self-regulate.
Then can start to ask
where they want to end up and what they want to sound like.
