  1. Does anyone know of a program or website that will allow me to make Greek flashcards? I would prefer to type them out and print them instead of writing them by hand.
  2. DD is using Hey, Andrew 1 this year. It is just lowercase letters and sounds with 3 vocabulary words at the end. She is a strong reader (going into 2nd grade LA this fall), but will be not-quite-6, so still a short attention span and her hand gets tired with too much writing. Would you recommend continuing with Hey, Andrew 2? Song School Greek? Something else? I like the look of Elementary Greek, but it seems to move really, really fast, and I think it would be better for her to have a year of English grammar under her belt before starting that. My hope is to do one more year of just Greek and either Spanish or Mandarin (she's had a very basic intro to both this year due to unexpected opportunities). Then in 3rd grade add in Latin and 2nd semester 3rd or 4th add the other modern language. I'd love any suggestions/recommendations. Thanks!
  3. Google Translate supports Latin and Greek and pronounces the translation.
  4. I've just read a review of Hey Andrew, which described it as ' the Saxon math of Greek.' So what's the Math Mammoth of Greek? I.e easy to use, not too much repetition, good explanations of 'why'....
  5. I have been considering beginning my children in Elementary Greek this fall, but as I've been looking through the boards I've noticed that quite a few people recommend using materials which thoroughly teach the alphabet/pronunciation first. I am trying to decide if I should get the Alphabetarion or Greek Code Cracker. The Alphabetarion looks way more thorough, but the Code Cracker looks like it would be more fun. Has anyone actually looked at or used both? Also, if I would use the Alphabetarion would I have to get the Hupogrammon to go with it? Thanks for any help.
  6. So one of the reasons (on my long list of reasons!) for homeschooling is the desire to teach my daughter languages. We've already introduced French, and will be continuing that, but I was looking at what other languages we might do. I know many of you study Greek, why? Do you study biblical Greek or modern Greek? If you study biblical Greek, what reasons are there for doing this, especially if you aren't religious? How hard is it to switch to modern Greek after learning biblical Greek? I was planning on doing French, German, and Latin, but I think it would be kind of interesting to do a language with a different alphabet. Thanks for any input!!
  7. what are some good greek curriculums for k-6> i am looking for homeric or attic, but would consider koine if that's all there is. most of the stuff i see is koine. thanks.
  8. Here's a link, fyi. I've searched the net and couldn't find any info other than "official" reviews, which all look really good. Any nay-sayers here? Thanks!
  9. Hi There, One of my friends is thinking of teaching an Online class, or perhaps IRL. I was helping them brainstorm their possibilities. I know that many have Latin Online classes. Are there just as many Greek? This would be Koine or Attic... Thanks!! (PS, any suggestions... stories...etc... are welcomed!)
  10. I plan to use the Alphabet Greek Code Cracker during the summer. I was wondering about Elementary Greek. I don't want anything overwhelming right now. Hopefully later we can REALLY start to study Greek but for now I want to start getting our feet wet. Any thoughts on this program. I like that it's inexpensive. I'm also considering Song School Greek Bundle. The ages of the kiddos will be 6-12 years. I understand that EG is for 2nd grade and up but for my 6yr. old I'm just looking for exposure right now. Thanks!
  11. What have you used and loved? This is for me, not my children, and I want something...gentle. Something other than a straightforward, down and dirty textbook (a la Henle for Latin.) I don't have a lot of time each day, but I am motivated and really want to read Homer in Greek some day. Something with an audio component would be nice. :bigear:
  12. We've decided to take a break from Latin for the rest of the year and do a Greek intro. We've made it through Latin Prep 2 and dd is frankly quite burnt out and would like to do Greek. I would like something fun and preferably with some audio. I would prefer secular, but I'm a little bit flexible. Any suggestions? :001_smile:
  13. We have a university and a seminary in town that both offer Greek. Which class would you take -- Greek from the Classics department or Koine Greek from the seminary? Why? My motivation for studying Greek has been to read the NT. Some say having the broader background of Classical Greek is a better foundation for reading and understanding the NT. OTOH, why study all the classical Greek if I think I only care about the NT? Editing to say that I just found out about these options and am considering them as a way to prepare to teach my kids once we finish the EG series (in about a year).
  14. http://www.helding.net/greeklatinaudio/greek/ Someone asked for something like this... can't find the thread, though. Carrie
  15. Ok, needing some more input on classical languages. For little ones in terms of Greek there's: Song School Greek (Koine? K-2ish) Hey Andrew...(Koine? 2nd/3rd grade?) The Greek Alphabet Code Breaker (Koine? 2nd) Elementary Greek (Koine? any ideas on ages?) What else might I be missing? This would be for 3rd grade and under.:001_smile: Anybody know anything about Galore Park's Greek book that isn't published yet?
  16. Ok, so after my worries yesterday about having too many books for this year, my 9yo ds said to me last night..."I really want to learn Greek mom. I love learning about the Greek myths and would like to learn the language too." I had planned on doing the Greek Alphabet Code Cracker and then moving on to The Great Latin Adventure. His comments though make me wonder if we should just do a year of Greek and put Latin off until 5th grade? What Greek would you recommend? Would Hey Andrew! Level 1 work well with the Greek Alphabet Code Cracker? That way dd (almost 7) could join in too if she is interested. Has anyone done these together? Or maybe Hey Andrew! level 2? (Does a level of Hey Andrew! last an entire year?) And if the interest is still there after that, move onto Greek for Children or Elementary Greek? Should Latin be put on hold for the year if we decide to do Greek this year? Can they both be done at the same time? I hadn't planned on doing any indepth Greek, but will do it if his interest is there. I might even enjoy it myself! I still believe in the importance of Latin as well, and like the looks of the Great Latin Adventure book 1 (I already have it.) How can we do both? Thanks.
  17. My dd15 is doing Elementary Greek level 1 this summer. It is advertised to be a full year course. However, she is breezing (literally) through it, doing a whole lesson a day (scheduled in the book for 1 week). This takes her an hour if she dawdles. I had planned on 1 credit, but now I think this should only be 1/2 cr. with hopefully level 2 next summer for another 1/2 credit. I would do it during the school year except we do Latin then.
  18. Are the Hey Andrew flashcards on a ring for Level 1 just the basic alphabet? Anything specific to that curriculum? I'd like some Greek alphabet flashcards to go along with our Code Cracker work, but I don't feel confident enough to write them out myself. :001_huh:
  19. I made these up for my daughter, who kept asking for a song when I was reading her Greek and Hebrew alphabet books. They are quite simple, but I thought they might be useful to others. They are both to the tune of "Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star," aka the traditional English Alphabet song, as that is the only proper alphabet song as far as my dd is concerned :tongue_smilie:.

  20. Hi everyone! I've been limping along through Lively Latin with my 3rd and 4th graders this year, and we just haven't made much progress. Toward the end of the year we started picking up the pace, and it is starting to click. For several reasons, we will be switching to LFC next year (really want the DVDs to help me learn, too!) We will also be using MFW RtoR which schedules English from the Roots Up. Since we are already doing Latin, is there much benefit to incorporating a separate roots program? I'm wanting to do more writing this next year, and I'm apprehensive about getting to it all. Any thoughts? Thanks! Shannon
  21. DS was peeking over my shoulders as I was surfing the forum. And he asked if he could start learning Latin or Greek next year. (He will be in second grade next year.) DS is pretty solid in reading/writing and math. So I'm thinking that we could give that some consideration. Should we try Greek or Latin? Any thoughts would be apprciated! :D Thanks!
  22. I think I'm going to try this for my soon to be 4th grader. Thank you. Alison in KY
  23. UGH!! Okay, I want to start a foreign language because it's the thing to do, right? I mean everyone else does it and SWB says we have to study Latin. But, latin sounds boring. And when I'm bored I'm just not interested in it and I'm barely plugging in a basic science and history now (but I'm improving all the time). Then again I thought about doing Greek because somehow that sounds more fun. But, I've at least been exposed to spanish and my parents hire the occasional Mexican employee to work on their farm. So now I'm just on foreign language overload. Someone please help me. I know I'm whining, but just forgive me and help me :001_smile:. My kids are soon to be 10,8, and 6. They are all average students who would much rather be playing, so somewhere they are skipping that eager love for learning part of homeschooling. IF you don't do a foreign language for the long haul (fluency) then how much will it really help you? As an example, if I picked up Song School Latin because it looked like fun, and I did it with all 3 kids, would it have zero benefits if I never touch Latin again? At what point will that foreign language benefit you...at what level. Say we did Elementry Greek 1 and never touched Greek again, have we gained anything? If I go with Greek, will that also help me with English grammar? Am I a total loser if I whimp out on all and use something like English from the Roots up, holding off until high school to do a couple years of Spanish? Any great programs that I'm not aware of? I'm thinking if I do Greek then I'd do the Greek Code Cracker and then Elementary Greek (all for oldest child). For Latin, maybe Prima Latina or Song School Latin and then LFC For Spanish, Rosetta Stone? And lastly, concerning chants from Classical Academic Press...does it help? I know you get the pronunciation from it, but can you actually keep up with which tense goes with what meaning. It sounds confusing to me. Thank you, Alison
  24. I was thinking about using Hey Andrew or Elementary Greek. There are probably others out there that I haven't heard about. Can anyone point me in the right direction? I'm an organizationally challenged mom of 3 who knows nothing about Greek. I'm looking for something pretty easy and not to writing intensive. This would be for my wiggly not so academic (still wanting to play and not caring about a foreign language) 9 yr old son. Alison in KY
  25. If you have used either of these, did you like it? Was there more than the greek Alphabet? Which option would be better... Alphabetarion/Hupogrammon and then on to Elementary Greek or Progressing through the Hey Andrew Series? They both appear to be Koine... any other differences? :001_huh:
