<HTML><FONT FACE=arial,helvetica><FONT SIZE=2>Last year I used Mounce. It is very thorough, too much so for first year
<BR>students, in my opinion. It also relies too much on the NT for translation.
<BR>This coming year I will be using _A Primer of Biblical Greek_ by Clayton
<BR>Croy. It is published by Eerdmans. He teaches at Trinity Lutheran in
<BR>Columbus, OH. He has many more translation exercises. Some are from the NT,
<BR>some from the LXX, and others are English to Greek. That in my opinion, is
<BR>what will turn a mediocre student into someone who begins to get a feel for
<BR>I have also used Machen, and Mills. They have many of the same advantages as
<BR>Another of last year's instructors loved Mounce, however. A lot is what you,
<BR>as the instructor, feel comfortable with and your style of teaching.
<BR>On a related note, I have many *boring* grammar exercises for Greek on one of
<BR>my web pages. These are exercises that are designed to get the students
<BR>practicing the endings of nouns and verbs, rather than translating.
<BR>Change the following verbs from present tense to aorist, retaining person and
<BR>Change the following verbs from singular to plural, retaining person.
<BR>They are all in pdf format. If you use them, please let me know as you find
<BR>errors. Each exercise is complete, but I do not have all the exercises I
<BR>want to have done yet. I hope to add a lot more before the beginning of
<BR>August, and certainly before the beginning of the fall semester.
