Re: Teaching Greek

Is there anyone out there with a background in language acquisition? I know
that there is a literature on which things work and which things don't work
when teaching languages, but I have never read any of it except for a few
articles on child language acquisition (when I was wondering how my kids
would handle both English and German when we lived in Germany).

I have the feeling that Greek is taught quite differently from other
languages - and frankly, I haven't yet seen any introductory Greek text that
is as good as a reasonably good German or French text. I suspect that the
people who write those kinds of texts have a lot to teach us about writing
Greek texts.
