This workbook to help beginners tackle ancient Greek uses visual images, verbal mnemonics, practice exercises, and vocabulary practice to take you, step by step, through the process of learning the Greek alphabet. With over 800 ancient Greek words, chosen for their ease of learning, plus a special section of Greek roots used in English.
This highly visual and full-colour workbook takes you, step by step, through the process of learning the Greek alphabet. It uses several strategies to help learners achieve mastery quickly and thoroughly. These strategies include:
test questions to help you practice
vocabulary lists for reading practice.
These vocabulary lists appear for each group of letters, so you can practice on words that only use the letters you have learned. To make them easier to read (and also, beneficially, remember), the words are mostly related to English words. Thus you can not only practice your letters, but also pick up some 800 words as well. Where the meaning of the words is less obvious, mnemonic keywords are provided.
The workbook includes:
instruction on learning the individual letters
visual and story mnemonics for learning the order of the alphabet
targeted vocabulary lists
full glossary with word meanings and mnemonics where appropriate
a special section of words that provide roots used in English medical and scientific vocabulary.
