Week 8: May 22nd
Finis. We had a great discussion of a few "chosen passages" and ended on a high note. I'll offer this same class again in the hopefully not-so-distant future and hope to arrange some sort of a "Greek 102" continuation class. For now, here are just a few websites that I've found useful and inspiring, for keeping that "sacred language fire" stoked:
Week 7: May 15th
We had another lively conversation about inflection and then received our "chosen passages." If you did not receive one, please take a look at one or both of the passages posted under handouts. No pressure, but we'll play with these at our final meeting next week.
Week 6: May 8th
We talked about nominal inflection today. Please email me your "chosen passage" selection before Thursday this coming week. We'll focus on the prayer itself next week and I'll hand out the prepared selections. For our final meeting, we'll take a look at our individual "chosen passages" and wax philological.
Week 5: May 1st
We practiced reading and pronouncing words written in lower case and then learned about diphthongs, diacritics, and consonant clusters. Handout (with "answers") posted under handouts and a new study set is posted on Quizlet. Please email me your "chosen passage" selection asap.
Week 4: April 24th
We met the lower case/minuscule letters of the Greek alphabet. Please work through the exercise on this week's handout, and practice our "new" vocabulary on Quizlet. Also, please be thinking of some verse, from either the Old or New Testament, that you would like for you "unseen passage." Email me your choice at any time.
Week 3: April 17th
We'll read our first words, in capital letters, this week. Start thinking about a passage that you would like for your "final."
Week 2: April 10th
We'll learn a bit about alphabet(s) in general and then start learning the capital letters of the Greek alphabet.
Week 1: April 3rd
Introductions. We'll get to know each other and get a feel for the workings of our course. We'll also ask ourselves, "Why Greek?"
