Re: Accute or Grave accent?

Carsen's book is very good. If you are not writing Greek much, it's more than you need. Just read a basic description in just about any Greek beginning grammar. I write a lot of Greek and made a study of Carsen's book, but still have trouble with accents. Yes, when quoting the single word υἱός (or r...

Re: Beginning Greek - syllabi, Learning Objectives, etc.

Shirley, I don't have anything already written that would serve, but since I just now studying curriculum/syllabus writing, I wouldn't mind giving it a shot for practice. I assume that the course will be using Grammar-Translation Method. That makes it quite easy. I would need more detail, though. On...

Re: Old man learning Greek

A. Learning when you are older has some advantages. There is a myth about not being able to learn languages when you are older. Your somewhat bilingual background will help tremendously. What worked for you in learning French, use in learning Greek (where transferable). B. Start with a more communic...

I'd love to do Part 2, 3, 4.

Re: Teaching the New Perspective on Greek Voice

ROAD – Greek Voice

Reintroduction: Σαῦλος Nitz

One of our new members introduced himself and asked in return “How about you all.” I went over to take a look at my introduction on B-Greek and found it outdated. Instead of writing up something new, I did a little revision on my “Language Learning Autobiography.” I had to write this up a couple we...
