NOTE: Below is a Song to use to memorize the case endings of the 1st and 2nd Declension (learned in Chs.6-7). One of my Greek classes (at The Bible Seminary) sang this to the tune of “Jesus Loves the Little Children”; play this over and over, sing along with it, and you will learn the case endings!  To follow along, you need to have this chart open in front of you; write these case endings down as you sing the song to yourself: https://biblicallanguages.files.wordpress.com/2009/05/all-case-endings-1st-and-2nd-decl1.pdf

Due Monday, Sept 10: In preparation for our first 3-hour class meeting, there is an assignment for you to complete BEFORE class on Monday:

[1] Read and study the Mounce textbook chapters 1-4.

[2]  Listen to/watch the Mounce “Chapter Overviews” for Lessons 3-4.  Here are the link to listen Mounce’s chapter overviews (as well as other neat stuff on the chapters); just click on the chapter you want to study:

http://www.teknia.com/newtestamentgreek1/

Note: Mounce also has a set of “full lectures” (as opposed to “chapter overviews”) available for purchase; he has made the lectures for Chs. 1-5 available at the link above for free. You’re welcome to listen to those, too, but it will cost money to listen beyond Ch. 5.

[3]  Complete all requirements for Mounce Chapters 3 and 4 (see link above for Assignments for Each Lesson of Mounce; scroll down to Chapters 3 & 4 and memorize/complete all that is required for that chapter).

[4] Memorize the Greek alphabet–the Greek letters, the name of the Greek letters, and the English transliteration of the Greek letters.  Your first quiz will be at the end of class on Monday over the Greek alphabet.  In order to help you learn the alphabet, please use my two handouts called Greek Alphabet and Greek Alphabet Practice Sheet.
