video of learning Ancient Greek through stories

Postby Markos » Sat Aug 14, 2010 3:12 am

Recently Louis Sorenson attended a seminar where he learned about a method
of teaching a foreign language through telling simple stories and asking repetitive questions.
He was kind to share some of the info with some of us.

I don't claim to understand all the details of the method, but I tried it out with a member
of our Koine conversational group. You can watch the video here:

The method works well to the extent that those with limited Koine speaking skills
can get practice repeating words and simple phrases that need to go into the long term
memory by active and repeated use. It also was effective in keeping the conversation focused
and moving, better than just spontaneous chat, which we have tried in the past.

I am writing in Ancient Greek not because I know Greek well, but because I hope that it will improve my fluency in reading. I got the idea for this from Adrianus over on the Latin forum here at Textkit.

and one I did with a friend who uses a similar method

If you go to my favorites on my You-Tube channel, I have collected the best Ancient Greek videos out there

You should make one yourself. They are more helpful to make than to watch.
