A new addition to the Zondervan line of biblical Greek resources. This resource includes everything a professor or a student will need: a CD (containing eleven songs and a PowerPoint with paradigm charts for classroom use) and a booklet with the same paradigm charts for students personal use. Sing and Learn New Testament Greek provides a way for learning (and remembering!) New Testament Greek grammar forms through simple songs. It is not designed to compete with existing Greek grammar books, but to serve as a required supplemental resource for elementary Greek classes. Indeed, it has been designed to be used alongside of any introductory grammar. A professor can simply assign to his or her students any (or some) of the songs for the paradigms a particular elementary grammar employs. In this way, students will actually remember what they have learned. (As we are all aware, people do not easily forget something learned via song.) The entire project includes songs for indicative verb endings, participles, infinitives, imperatives, contract forms, and prepositions, among others. All but the last song can be sung in 15 seconds or less. Parsing is enormously easier through this method. And it is a lot more fun than traditional methods. (Are we allowed to even use the word "fun" in reference to elementary Greek? Absolutely!) Beginning Greek students can listen to the CD as they drive to and from school or work, or put it on their iPod. These songs are so simple that students who have used them complain about waking up in the middle of the night with the songs running through their heads. Youll never hear that complaint from students who have had to use rote memory to learn grammar forms.

Jay1 Stars Out Of 5Download has NO ChaptersSeptember 25, 2015JayQuality: 1Value: 1Meets Expectations: 1You know how you can skip to the next song on a regular disk - you can't do that here with the download. I was given no outline of the material on the disk, so I have no idea what the reader is singing about. Either buy the disks (if you find a positive review of them) or avoid the thing altogether.
Analicia Davis5 Stars Out Of 5February 21, 2010Analicia DavisThis is an excellent product. The songs are catchy, consise, and well organized. When used daily in studying Biblical Greek, they replace the memorization of dozens of other paradigms you need for learning the endings of Greek nouns, verbs, participles, etc. Theses songs greatly enhanced my learning and will be a tool I use for years to come.

Laura Hall1 Stars Out Of 5March 10, 2009Laura HallMy husband took four years of Greek. He commutes four hours a day and needs help staying awake while driving. I purchased this as a refresher...bad idea. He said it was awful. First negative purchase ever. Oh well it happens.the rating button doesn't work. I would rate it a -0.
