I want you to know that this is a review post for First Form Greek Complete Set by Memoria Press. All views are honest and in good faith. We love languages, but some are obviously harder to learn than others. I find that Romance languages (Spanish, French, Portuguese, etc) are easiest for me, including Latin. But what about Greek?
Believe it or not, I learned the Greek alphabet and could read out of the Bible in Greek, although I had no idea what I was reading! Want to Learn Greek the Easy Way? In this post, I will share with you how I am learning Greek myself and how I am planning on teaching it to my children.
Want to Learn Greek the Easy Way?
First off, I want to brag a little bit about Memoria Press a bit. I simply love the approach they take on languages. I have gone through their Latina Christiana curriculum for Latin and seriously recommend it all the way. You can see the post HERE. Take a look below at the image. The set I received in the mail is very complete and the material covered is amazing. I really enjoy how thorough Memoria Press curricula is.
First Form Greek Complete Set includes: a student textbook, a teacher manual with information for each lesson, a student workbook, a book with quizzes and tests, a teacher’s key book for the quizzes and tests, a pronunciation CD, a set of flashcards with vocabulary for each lesson and a DVD with the teacher giving the lessons and explaining the material.
Wonderful Greek Materials
Want to Learn Greek the Easy Way? This complete set is great. It is geared for students in grades 7th-12th, but adults can use it, too. I have been studying it for a few minutes a day and have been learning a lot. The way I am able to do it in my busy schedule is to break it up into small chunks.
On Day 1, I watch the video lesson. Then, on Day 2, I use the text and the workbook to do part 1 in the lesson. On Day 3, I do part 2 and then on Day 4, I practice the vocabulary with the flashcards and the pronunciation CD. And on Day 5, I take the test for the lesson.
As you can see, you can do an entire lesson in one sitting or break it up in smaller parts, like I do.
When I am ready to teach some Greek to m children, I will start by using the flashcards and find some easy words to begin our learning journey. I know that they are too young to go through the curriculum themselves or to sit through the lessons because they are 5 and 7 years old, but teaching them a little bit of Greek will keep it fresh for me and it will keep me coming back to the books.
