Living Koine seems like it may be a good place to start, but I haven't had much chance to test out how age appropriate it would actually be, and it is a bit outside the Sunday School budget at the moment! We have the kids reading through John Ch. 1 now and I am putting together some visual flashcard...

Thanks Dewayne - I'm excited to read your translation of John. I've appreciated our interactions both in English and Greek, and I look forward to many more in the future!

Mounce's Graded Reader is great - I used it and found it very helpful. Decker's Koine Reader is even better - reading non-NT texts at that stage is vital and his reader really is well put together. However, once a student is done with these transitional materials I think they need to stop 'translati...

You don't just play scales, you listen for particular things as you play them, working on your tone or...
The copyright status of the Greek text of a critical edition is an unresolved issue under U.S. copyright law. (The apparatus and other value-added material by the editor is copyrightable, of course.) To be safe and to be courteous, I would recommend using out-of-copyright texts for reader's edition...
I'm interested in creating "reader's" editions of Greek texts. For example, I'm reading through the Epistle to Diognetus right now. I have to look up uncommon vocabulary and difficult constructions as I go, so I may as well record that information in a visually appealing, accessible format. Does an...

Also, Charlie, where are you going to start? Rod Whitacre's Patristic Greek Reader (published by Hendrickson, now with Baker Academic [disclaimer (or would it be "claimer"): I work for Baker] gives an excellent set of selections with notes to help you through them. Or you could start with the Apost...
I am currently trying to teach myself Greek, though I'm finding it's pretty difficult. Grammatically, it's so different from English, and the worst part is not having an idea of how to pronounce the vocabulary, what with their accents and everything. And accents are pretty terrible, too - I'm not q...
