Free Greek for Starters

Some weeks back, I posted a link to some great, FREE materials for learning Greek. I’d like to add a link to that: Teknia, the site of Bill Mounce, an evangelical seminary professor who’s really a master teacher. I used his book, tape series, and workbook to teach myself the basics of biblical (and patristic) Greek. I ran the tapes while I was driving the kids to and from swim lessons and while I was walking on the treadmill. Mounce’s system works for people like me — people who are busy and who operate at relatively low wattage. Now I see that he’s posted much of the foundational material — including some awesome software and fonts — for FREE on his website. This will get you through the basics: alphabet, pronunciation, some minimal vocabulary. Check it out.

Mounce is great! It’s amazing how much good, solid information he packed into that Greek intro.

This is excellent! A small ‘teach yourself Biblical Greek’ movement has grown out of our parish’s study of the Bible & the Mass. WE’ll be using these resources, for sure.

Thanks for the heads up! I’ll bookmark it for the day I decide to really TAKE THE PLUNGE!
