Trivium Pursuit A Greek Alphabetarion: A Primer for Teaching How to Read, Write & Pronounce Ancient & Biblical Greek

Studying Greek helps develop mental discipline in many ways. But some beginning courses expect students to tackle grammar without first mastering the basic skills of reading it. This accessible and comprehensive text guides students letter-by-letter through the Greek alphabet. Features transliteration tables, letter-card activities, interesting "For Your Information" tidbits, a pronunciation CD, and more. All ages. 158 pages, softcover from Trivium Pursuit.

I am so pleased with this series of Biblical Greek resources by Harvey Bluedorn. My 13-yr old son has been thoroughly enjoying teaching himself Biblical Greek, with minimal assistance from me. We just reinforce the letters using the cards - the rest he does himself. The CD is also very helpful, as the pronunciation of letters differs from English. We are extremely happy with this product.

This is one of the best primers on Biblical Greek that I have discovered. My 9 year old and I are working through the book together, and it is working for both of us. It is not too technical, yet it is challenging and provides snippets of extra information to keep our interest up.

This program was developed by Harvey Bluedorn who along with his wife Laurie authored Teaching the Trivium. Having encouraged parents in the wisdom to consider teaching Greek, Mr. Bluedorn now provides us a venue to do so.This program is designed so that a parent can easily and systematically begin to teach and learn Greek alongside their young children. An older child can easily go through the program at his own pace. The text is clear, well laid out and includes a valuable pronunciation CD. After completing this course one can continue a more in depth study of Greek with Mr. Bluedorns Homeschool Greek program.

I wanted to write in to encourage anyone who finds the idea of teaching your children biblical Greek a daunting task. I have followed the Bluedorn's advice on teaching (and learning it myself) biblical Greek, first learning the alphabet and then the sounds of each. This week we bought our first interlinear to actually begin READING Greek and building our vocabulary. Wow. We are really doing it!!! Our 11 yo son and I are learning Greek as we go and thoroughly enjoying ourselves. It isn't nearly as hard as I was afraid it would be. My middle 2 children (6 & 7) already know the alphabet and most of the sounds as we do this together as recitation aloud each morning.Thank you Bluedorns, for all you have done to change the quality of life in our homeschool family. :-)
