Re: Speaking Greek means digging into inflections

I appreciate CWC's comment. Inflection generating software doesn't seem a natural start for learning inflections. But maybe it has a function for quickly double checking forms. :idea: χωρις KALOS SOFTWARE, λογους τουτους εγω εγραψα ὑμιν. εαν εγω γραψῃ ποιησαντι KALOS, ποσῳ μαλλῳ γραψομαι ὑμιν; ποιησ...

Speaking Greek means digging into inflections

Generate a full inflection, and voila! δειξάτωσαν PROS It will inflect any word, verb, noun, adjective, pronoun. The inflectio...

Re: James Asher's TPR Method and Greek Pedagogy

Thank you, Louis, for the explanation. You wrote that using Bible stories is not ideal. But isn't it a great motivation to be working toward comprehension of a real Greek text? What if we had a series of smaller, made-up stories that would build up to understanding the Bible story? The made-up stori...

Anki Flashcard Deck - Verb Inflection

I've "shared" an Anki deck for reviewing verb forms. It's ordered intuitively (or maybe just oddly). For those who know Anki, if you are interested, go to share decks and search for "Greek Verbs - Intuitive Inflection, Ver. 001" (Or type "nitz" in the search line and it should show). The deck descri...

Re: James Asher's TPR Method and Greek Pedagogy

Jonathon, As the video which Louis linked to (see post above) stressed in the first frames, and as Asher stresses, production of language interferes with the reception and retention of language. A physical response is also key to internalizing. Though I haven't read about TPR S yet, I'm thinking tha...

Re: Decode No More

Susan, Your interest is really encouraging. I would love to do some beginner videos to demontrate this more. I'll try. But I really don't have any special knowledge or ability to use gestures. I don't think there's any great trick. Just do it. Make it up as you go. You'll likely say to yourself, thi...
