Category Description for Hey, Andrew! Teach Me Some Greek:

This series of workbooks teaches koine Greek using a combination of deductive, inductive, and interactive methodology. Its main goal is to equip students to study the Greek New Testament for themselves, so they can identify inaccurate theology based on faulty exegesis. But it's also worthwhile to pursue for expanding vocabulary, since many English words have Greek roots. The Level One reader teaches the 24 letters of the Greek alphabet. Its companion workbook reinforces the learning, including a variety of activity pages (matching, dot-to-dot, puzzles). Students below fourth grade should start at this level. Level Two begins using the Greek alphabet to form words. Eleven vocabulary words lay the foundation for grammar to be introduced in Level Three. The workbook contains a review of the alphabet, Greek words to read and write, and a variety of puzzles and activity pages. Level Three begins to incorporate grammar, introducing noun and verb inflections, including second declension nouns and present active verbs. Students begin to translate Greek to English and English to Greek. The workbook reviews alphabet and vocabulary from previous levels, so upper senior high and adult students can begin here. Level Four continues with the first declension and the articles, incorporating these new skills into the translation of Greek sentences. The workbook reviews learning from previous levels, and teaches articles, accents, feminine nouns, and word order. As with other levels, it also contains activity pages to help make the learning fun. Level Five adds adjectives, prepositions, and adverbs. Level Six introduces imperfect and future indicative, middle/passive voice, personal pronouns, enclitics, deponents, and continues to expand vocabulry. In Level Seven, students perfect their Greek skills as they learn additional pronouns, work on language proficiency in all tenses and voices, expand their vocabulary, and work on translating the first two chapters of I John. According to the author, completing the first seven levels of the program is roughly equivalent to three credits of high school Greek. Just recently added, Level Eight covers subjunctive and imperative mood, irregular adjectives, comparison of adjectives and adverbs and more while continuing to translate and write Greek sentences and translating II John and III John.

Because of the gentle introduction and incremental learning, this series is excellent for teaching Biblical Greek without prior experience with the language. Although I have not personally undertaken the study of Greek, a good friend has found this series extremely helpful and easy to use as a first introduction to the language. She is very concerned about being able to correctly translate the New Testament from the original Greek herself so that she can understand more clearly the original meaning of the scripture, especially the words of Jesus.

Hi, I'm hoping to teach an hour of Greek per week in a homeschool co-op to 2nd grade students. I'm wondering if I should start with the next level of "Hey Andrew..."? Any thoughts?

BEST ANSWER: This is a lovely, gentle approach to beginner Koine Greek. My son used it in second grade and liked it. That said, it is extremely repetitive and not terribly interesting. In a co-op setting, I think it would be hard to fill an hour time slot with this program and keep the children focused. In addition, the program uses inductive teaching methods. We are on book 3 now, and my son is having difficulty connecting the dots on conjugations and declensions. He also has been learning Latin since first grade, and he is used to parsing the words. At this point, Hey Andrew is not teaching that way. We are switching to Memoria Press's Elementary Greek.

I would suggest using Classical Academic Press's Greek Code Cracker for your co-op littles. My son LOVED it, and it kept him excited to continue learning Greek. I think it would be a fun, engaging way to teach Greek and would itself well to creative group activities as there are mysteries to solve!

This is just my two cents, but I hope it helps.
