new method for learning NT Greek. Feedback desired.

Hello all,

I'm developing a novel way to teach and learn Greek. I have a website where this method can be explored.

http://www3.telus.net/norbertre/index.html

You need a Polytonic Greek unicode font to be able to read the stories. There are links on the site where you can download them.

My approach is to teach paradigms and vocabulary in a story context. The user can interact with controls and select things like plural/singular, 1,2 and 3rd person, ...

Hi all I found a site with wonderful help for us studying Bill's book. It has handouts, quiz's, vocab study pages, reading help. Just a really great find. I don't know if you all know about it, but it was a gold mine for me.

Penmanship

The quick sly fox jumped over the lazy brown dog.

That sentence uses every letter in the Eng. alphabet. Does anyone know of a Bible verse in Greek which does the same? This would be helpful for teaching greek penmanship to children.

Anyone here reading the Septuagint?

I started learning Greek in May, and since I enjoy reading the Bible, particularly in Hebrew, I thought trying to read it in Greek while I'm learning would be a lot of fun, and it is!

How much do you all review?

Hi all
I am at chapter 19, chapter 20 looks intense. Back to my question. I have been constantly reviewing the vocab throughout the book as I go on. But I'm finding as I'm adding to the memory slots, as Bill says, I am forgeting things like the paridigm for the relitive pronouns and other things. How often should I review? How do you all do the review of chapters, or do you at all, ...

Intensive Biblical Greek Summer Course

I would like to learn Biblical Greek, but I am not close to an institution that teaches it. I would like to go someplace for a summer to do an intensive course. I would also like to receive undergraduate credit for it. Does anyone know of such a program?

Thanks.

Bill

What is a better translation in Koine, and what are the strengths and weaknesses of each-


e)gw\ de\ ptwxo\j kai\ pe/nhj


I've seen some grammars explain this construction should be "both"

I am both poor and needy

while some translations use the more literal say "but... and" - Such as in the
