Homeschool Self-Study Greek: A Thorough Self-Teaching Grammar of Biblical Greek — $9.99

Homeschool Self-Study Greek: A Thorough Self-Teaching Grammar of Biblical Greek is like no other Biblical Greek grammar.

Not only is Homeschool Greek self-teaching, but it is thorough. Students, both young and old, can teach themselves Greek in homeschool, in private school, or as a preparation for seminary or college.

Features include:
1. For ages 13 through adult — unlike other grammars, this is designed for younger students.
2. Teaches English grammar before it introduces Greek grammar.
3. Self-teaching — you do not need a teacher; the text is your teacher; the text continually asks questions and confirms or corrects your answers.
4. Programmed — the text takes us through the normal trivium process of learning.
5. Extensive preprinted Vocabulary Drill Cards.
6. A Greek New Testament Reader which covers Matthew 5-7, including an English translation.
7. Audio pronunciation files for both the textbook and the reader.
8. Diagnostic tests to determine whether the material has been mastered, and if not, what material to restudy.

Volume One has 18 chapters divided into 95 lessons and 15 comprehensive tests. The material begins very easy, gradually increases in difficulty, and concludes with five challenging chapters. The last 10 chapters use Biblical expressions for examples and exercises. The student must memorize numerous Greek passages from the Proverbs and the New Testament. The text points out information which the student is required to enter in an orderly Greek notebook. After completing Volume One, the student should have a working knowledge of Greek nouns, pronouns, adjectives, and prepositions and some knowledge of the Greek verb system. Younger students will take up to two years to complete Volume One. Adult students may be able to complete it in a few months.

There are four components to Homeschool Self-Study Greek: A Thorough Self-teaching Grammar of Biblical Greek:

1. Homeschool Self-Study Greek: A Thorough Self-teaching Grammar of Biblical Greek Textbook
2. Homeschool Self-Study Greek: New Testament Reader
3. Homeschool Self-Study Greek: Diagnostic Tests
4. Homeschool Self-Study Greek: Vocabulary Drill Cards

Audio pronunciation files for both the textbook and the reader are found here.

HS Greek Reader Cover

Homeschool Self-Study Greek: New Testament Reader, Matthew 5-7, Greek Text with English Inter-Phrasal Translation — $3.99

This Homeschool Self-Study Greek: New Testament Reader provides easy to use and profitable reading material for the beginning Greek student.

In this reader, the Greek text is divided into smaller units of thought (clauses, phrases, etc.), and an evenly flowing English translation is placed immediately below each smaller unit of the Greek text. An abbreviation which identifies the part of speech is placed before each Greek word. The same subscript is added to the corresponding word(s) in the English translation. In this way, anyone can easily determine which words in the English translation correspond to specific words in the Greek text, or vice versa. This produces both an evenly flowing English translation – like an inter-columnar translation – but also a direct word-for-word correspondence – like an interlinear translation – while all the parts of speech are identified in both Greek and English.

A guide to Greek syllable division is included in order to help the Greek student in the audible reading of the text.

An interpretive outline is inter-woven within the text in order to help the reader to follow the sense of what he is reading.

Though this Greek Reader is a stand-alone product, it was developed to be used along with Homeschool Self-Study Greek: A Thorough Self-teaching Grammar of Biblical Greek.

Audio pronunciation files for both the textbook and the reader are found here.

Review of Homeschool Greek by Cathy Duffy

This is a self-contained Greek course for students ages thirteen and up. The Volume I course, “Mostly Nouns and Such,” consists of a 310-page, plastic comb-bound textbook, a 65-page Greek reader, vocabulary cards, and test booklet. It assumes that students are familiar with the symbols and sounds of the Greek alphabet. (A Greek Alphabetarion provides the necessary groundwork.) Students need not have prior instruction in English grammar, although it will certainly be helpful. See the rest of this review at Cathy Duffy’s web site.
