The Koine Immersion Series is designed to help you learn, enjoy, and become more comfortable with the Greek language. In this first volume, Dr. Stephen Reasor, professor of Biblical Greek at Burman University, guides students through the beginning elements of the Greek language via the inductive approach.
"The Inductive Approach" or "The Communicative Approach" introduces students to language learning in an interactive, fun, semi-immersive, and embodied way. It draws on the best insights from linguistic theory and language pedagogy to both bring the language to life and bring life to the language. The Koine Immersion series will have students listening to, speaking, reading, writing, and “watching” the language. The electronic format of this resource allows students to take short assessments along the way and receive instant feedback.
In Level One, students will learn:
- the alphabet
- letter sounds
- letter combinations
- common greetings
- simple conversational elements
- word formation and lexical entries
- the nominative, vocative, and accusative cases
- basic verbs
- the Present Tense (-ω and -μι verbs)
- the forms and functions of genitive and dative substantives, articles, and pronouns,
- present middle and passive verbs.
- Vocabulary items include words occurring 142 or more times in the NT as well as animals and colors.
Our goal with this series is to help you or those you instruct learn Koine Greek in a way that is enjoyable and retainable. To learn more, watch the introductory video located above (the second movie icon just below the title cover).
