Though the Greek alphabet is similar to our English alphabet, it is also different enough to be a major impediment to the study of Greek. Delving into the Greek grammar and learning the alphabet at the same time is overwhelming for most everyone. Give yourself the time to master the Greek letters and become comfortable with them before you plunge into Greek. Memoria Press’ Greek Alphabet program is a tour of the Greek letters, their formation, and sounds. A page is devoted to each letter and includes a letter diagram with arrows showing proper formation, printing lines showing placement of letters above and below the lines, letters to trace and copy, interesting facts and hints to help remember the letter’s sound, and questions. Each lesson consists of three letters, a review page, and a quiz.
A second unit includes practice in copying and sounding out Greek words, diphthongs, syllables, accent names, iota subscript, and breathing marks. By the end of this course, you will be ready to tackle the Greek grammar in Elementary Greek or First Form Greek.
This set includes the Student Book and the Teacher Guide.
