Re: Is learning accents really important?

As you can see, there's a whole range of opinions. I'm a fan of "learn what you need as you need it", and "the brain learns language better through exposure than through memorization". So for a beginning student, you need awareness of which syllable is stressed when pronouncing a word. You need to b...

Re: Greek Grammar Book Order for Self Learning

David Alan Black's Learn to Read New Testament Greek seems more user friendly to me, and more oriented toward reading Greek in Greek. Does anyone know if there is a workbook for this? Technically yes, there is a corresponding workbook of the same name, by different authors. However I cannot in good...

Re: Greek Grammar Book Order for Self Learning

Welcome to learning Greek, we're excited your starting on the journey with us! The site you listed mentions "Please do NOT go out and purchase all of the books listed here.", and I would humbly submit that for someone just starting out in Greek, you really only need 2 or 3 things total for at least ...

Re: Croy 1999 vs 2011

All I'm concerned about is that vocab & chapter ordering/content haven't changed. So if copyright on 2011 says 1999, that sounds like just a reprint. Thanks, Stephen.

Croy 1999 vs 2011

Does anyone know what the differences are between the 1999 and 2011 versions of Croy's text (https://www.eerdmans.com/Products/6733/a-primer-of-biblical-greek.aspx) are? My google skills are failing to answer whether these are just separate printings or actually different editions with distinct cont...

Re: Reader's Editions of the Greek New Testament

Jonathan Robie wrote:A Reader's Greek New Testament (Zondervan). Definitions are supplied for words used less than 50 times in the Greek New Testament.
Small correction - unless the 2nd ed. differs from the 1st, definitions are given for words <30, not <50.

Re: Life after a basic grammar

So, I'm about to finish my first intro grammar! It's been a really fun journey, but I know I'm just at the beginning of my studies. What are your recommendations on where to go next? p.s. Congrats on making it through boot camp. ;) I think the biggest encouragement I can offer is to find ways to se...

Re: Life after a basic grammar

So, do you think after only having done a basic grammar, I could start reading a readers version?Which editions do you recommend? I've been happy with Zondervan's reader (although I think I have 1st ed) For someone just starting a reader's GNT, here was how I eased into it: It's a big jump from iso...

Re: Struggling with Participles

I doubt many students would be willing to systematically go through so many examples anyway. How I would treat this is to pick a column and try to read through it, seeing how many I could understand the gist of. Work through the column a second time, and then pick maybe 1-2 examples from the ones I...
