Re: Where Are Your Keys' Universal Speed Curriculum

There's also a longish clip from when I was using some WAYK to teach Greek in Mongolia. It's online here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wExEgS0maQU More illustrative than informative, I would think. This video and your others demonstrating WAYK in Greek were some of the first resources that I fou...

Re: Where Are Your Keys' Universal Speed Curriculum

GREEK UNIVERSAL SPEED CURRICULUM Part 1 “What is this?” Justin: What is this? τί ἐστιν τοῦτο; Evan: This is the stone. οὗτος ἐστιν ὁ λίθος. Justin: Oh, this is the stone? οὗτος ἐστιν ὁ λίθος; Evan: Yes, this is the stone. ναί, οὗτος ἐστιν ὁ λίθος. More of a question of style: Is it more natural to ...

Re: Where Are Your Keys' Universal Speed Curriculum

Is this the kind of thing you are looking for? Personally, I don't use sign language when I do this, but I know some people feel strongly that it helps. (I actually know some sign language, too, but I don't use it here.) Would it be useful to spend a little time getting Part I into a really good fo...

Re: Where Are Your Keys' Universal Speed Curriculum

Have you seen these? https://whereareyourkeys.files.wordpress.com/2010/03/universalspeedcurriculum.pdf https://whereareyourkeys.files.wordpress.com/2010/03/usc-wayk-espanol.pdf I think they give a idea of how to introduce things gradually, and what to do. Act things out vividly, be expressive. Prac...

Where Are Your Keys' Universal Speed Curriculum

I have seen the Where Are Your Keys teaching method mentioned here a few times and I am planning to use it for an upcoming class. The WAYK website has a great demonstration video and resources for implementing the game (https://whereareyourkeys.org/resources/). One of the resources is the Universal ...

Re: Hello from Tim

Welcome Tim, I am just learning too and I am very interested in learning Greek (not modern) as a language. Elsewhere I have seen the suggestion to only take notes in the target language when doing study, and writing definitions seems to be a great way to do that. As a beginner my definitions will ce...

Re: Most Frequented Internet Link

Thanks for the replies, there is a lot of material there that will be very valuable. I was glad to see the Early Church documents as I was wondering where I could find them.

Most Frequented Internet Link

Is anyone willing to share their favorite/most frequented Greek link? As a beginner I am finding a wealth of information but I am sure that I have only scratched the surface. I have been going through the archive of http://newtestamentgreekportal.blogspot.com/ a lot and have found a lot of interesti...

Re: Hello and a Question

Thanks for the welcome! But I think you'll find that a phpBB forum isn't the best way to maintain such a list, since you can't go back and edit your messages later. I did not realize that you could not go back and edit the messages. That makes perfect sense for a forum so I will find another way. Pr...

Hello and a Question

Hello to everyone here on B-Greek. As a language learner I am very excited about this forum. I love languages and am particularly interested in the Greek of the Bible. Several times in the past I have started independent study mostly by trying to plow through a textbook. This time around I have been...
