Might I suggest using REAL Greek forms:
EUODOU~SQAI 'to be prospering'
PERIPATEI~N 'to be walking'
AGAPA~N 'to be loving'
Just use lots of real-verb drill in class, so that they use the many common
verbs of this type before you explain "why".
Adults can learn this way, too, and it sits better in the brain.
