Re: 2nd year Greek for middle/high schoolers

Garrett, That sounds wonderful. So, it sounds like Barry's advice to read and use grammar as a reference to increase comprehensibility is a good plan. Have you tried to simplify stories for them? Sometimes it's called Leveled Stories, sometimes Embedded Readings. You take a text, and simplify it 2 o...

Re: 2nd year Greek for middle/high schoolers

Don't you think texts from the Bible will be far too difficult for beginners? If you could pull off doing TPRS with them, or Where Are Your Keys, you could tailor it to the right level (and it's much more fun). But that is a heavy load on you. You need to be the fluent speaker of Ancient Greek. If t...

Re: Hoping for real reading proficiency

Jonathan,

Thanks for posting your doc on asking questions in Koine.

How about adding μη & ου questioning?

How about a short bit on Answering? Are there normal and emphatic ways of answering? E.g. Εγω versus εγω γε.

The Jannaris chapter was interesting, but yours is much more useful.

Re: Conjugation of μεταβαίνω: (particularly) Μετάβηθι

Kalos Beautiful Greek Software is what I go to for things like this. Here you'll see the form βᾶθι... Either Kalos is wrong (as it is sometimes) or this is an older form of βῆθι.

Highly recommended. Between this book and Kalos Beautiful Greek Software, I don't use anything else these days. Unfortunately, I cannot find Kalos just now and so can't give a link.

Re: Dative case as the direct object?

What am I missing? You're not missing anything. I think you are simply taking those particular Greek verbs (the ones that match with the dative) on their own terms. But consider whether the idea about the more-or-less transitive sounding English glosses is helpful or more confounding. For me, I'd s...

The datives are predicative functioning at the level of the clause, while the genitives function within the NP.
