A yearlong course for grades 4 and up
Understandable, engaging, creative, and in-depth, Greek for Children Primer A will introduce your students to Koine Greek. Why Greek? Like Latin, Koine Greek will aid students in critical thinking and help them to develop a strong understanding of grammar. Many English words are derived from ancient Greek, and students will especially see the benefits of learning Greek when studying science and medicine. Last, but hardly least, Koine Greek is the language of the New Testament, and the study of the original language will gradually unveil the richness, depth, and beauty of the New Testament message.
Greek for Children Primer A contains 32 weekly chapters, including 4 chapters on the Greek alphabet and 5 review chapters. Each chapter begins with a memory page, presenting the chant and vocabulary for the week’s lesson. Clear explanations of grammar are integrated into every chapter and written at the student’s reading level. Weekly worksheets and quizzes help students practice and retain vocabulary and grammar concepts.
