Re: Learning Greek Experience as a native Greek

Thank you for your comments. Are your children learning to read Greek at school? I'm a little surprised that reading aloud is not really a part of their education. It probably has to do with a different philosophy of education than I am used to.

Re: Learning Greek Experience as a native Greek

On a slightly different note, how do modern Greek children learn to read modern Greek? Is it primarily based out of the home, or more in formal educational settings? Is there much literature published for children?

Re: Illustrations for new texts

Anything and everything. I'll send you privately the draft of our most basic book at this point. Obviously we want the finished product to be downloadable, so the images will have to be digitized at some point, but we could probably do with basic line drawings at this point. Anyone else who is inter...

Re: Illustrations for new texts

We thought about that, but unfortunately I think it will be too complicated to try get something that will fit well. I'll just do stick figures if I can't find anything, but I was hoping someone with more of an artistic bent would be interested in participating.

Illustrations for new texts

Some of us are working on the leveled readers idea, and we need some illustrations. Are there any list members that would like to draw pictures for our books?

Re: Leveled Readers (and how to spell Requadt)

That was really interesting. I am so proud of myself for answering 100% on the first passage. I couldn't have possibly done so without looking at pretty much ALL of the clues given in the text. Essentially, this level is too advanced for me! This might be what educators call an "instructional level,...

Leveled Readers (and how to spell Requadt)

Finally, yes, my name is now being spelled correctly. Thank you, Internet World. I wanted to clarify a little more on the leveled readers. In my classroom, my students are expected to be reading books at their level (not exclusively, but much of the time). This is only possible because our school li...

Re: Three Methods for Helping Beginners Learn to read Hel. I

I'm going to jump in here because my name was mentioned earlier (I THINK). I certainly don't have the expertise in Greek or in teaching Greek to weigh in on how to paraphrase any of Xenophon or whether Mark's paraphrase is accurate. I'm one of the B-Greekers who couldn't read it without outside help...

Re: The terms, "Biblical Greek" and "NT Greek"

Hmmm. Unfortunately for me, I don't enough about the stylistic and linguistic similarities/differences between the LXX and the NT, and between them and the Greek before/after them. In one sense, the vast majority of texts discussed on B-Greek are canonical texts, and other texts that are discussed o...

Re: προς - Acts 27:34

Although if you were to spend that much money, I would recommend that you get an electronic version, such as is available for Logos (and probably BibleWorks and Accordance). My rule of thumb is to get electronic versions of reference works, but paper copies of anything that I would want to sit down ...
