Reviews - What do our customers think?
Fun and Effective  Apr 26, 2010
I just finished using this book to teach my 11 and 9 year-old daughters the Greek alphabet. We spent 15 minutes a day, over 4 weeks, to get through the 8 chapters. I gave them 15 minutes a day of homework, as well.

It was a fun, painless exercise, but, more to the point, it worked. They are completely comfortable sounding out Greek words, and are not intimidated by the alphabet, at all. It is a great springboard into teaching them Biblical Greek.

I will say that my girls refused to listen to the audio files on the website(they thought that they were for "little kids"), but it was no great loss.

Hats off to the publisher - lots of books promise to deliver a fun-yet-effective introduction to a language, but few deliver. Highly recommended.
A Fun Way to Enter into the Study of Greek!  Feb 8, 2010
While geared towards elementary-aged children, I found this book a perfectly appropriate--not to mention very fun!--introduction to the Greek alphabet for teens as well as adults. Becoming fluent in a new alphabet and its phonology is essential to a smooth start in a new language, and this book delivers what it promises.

The premise of the book takes you, the student-sleuth, on a mystery adventure where you must "crack the code" in order to find out who has stolen the priceless (though fictional) "Vase of Achilles" from a museum (there is an entertaining YouTube video to whet your appetite for the book; just go to the publisher's website, Classical Academic Press). Along the way you are instructed in "the code" (i.e. the Greek alphabet) and provided with plenty of reading, writing, and puzzle exercises to develop a comfortable working knowledge of the Greek alphabet. The letters are introduced incrementally over a period of eight lessons using English words written in Greek "code". Included are essential lessons on consonant blends, breathing and accent marks, diphthongs, as well as an introduction to some real Greek words by the sixth lesson. The text itself is attractively laid out in full-color, glossy pages, though this latter aspect may not be the best medium upon which to do the writing exercises.

Additionally, the publisher provides online audio files for pronunciation help. There are also other supplementary learning aids, including alphabet flash cards. My only complaint has been with the flash cards: a couple of the letters' pronunciations have been erroneously mislabeled. I have alerted the publisher to this problem; the folks there are usually very responsive, so I have no doubt that it will soon be corrected. In any case, the problem does not affect the otherwise excellent book. Even if you choose to go no further with the study of Greek, learning the alphabet is a worthwhile exercise in and of itself. Highly recommended.
