About this app

The content and features of the application are for free. However, in order to support continuity and future development, we offer premium features: offline learning, bookmarks, statistics, more customized learning, and some other features. Thank you for your support.

Ginoskos offers courses on Greek and Hebrew grammar. These courses will lead you through essential parts of Greek and Hebrew grammar. Every grammatical topic can be trained with exercises. Lessons include a short summary of key points and grammatical charts.

Ginoskos helps you with building up your vocabulary by providing various kinds of exercises. You can train both vocabulary and grammar. When you start doing some exercise Ginoskos will track your learning progress and make sure that you will gradually review already learned items (the app reflects the knowledge of the forgetting curve).
Further, there are special exercises for learning frequency vocabularies for both Greek and Hebrew from the most occurring words to the less. There are vocabularies of particular passages and also of the whole biblical books.

This is a well-designed language tool. As someone else has said, it is great for vocabulary, but could use more development in the grammar lessons and exercises. There is a nice balance between the free and the paid version. The free version was good enough to learn everything, but the paid version allowed for further tweaks to the exercises. Wishlist: Practice on missed items. Personal challenges with your followers. More detailed answers to prevent duplicates I.e. hair and hair for θριξ.

Perfect for review and relearning. I took Biblical Hebrew and Greek in college but was not as dedicated as I wish I had been. The result is that I don't remember much at all. This app has so much in it and it manages to NOT be overwhelming. I love the vocab reviews and speed tests. I also love that you can practice the vocab for specific portions of the Bible. My dream of reading the BIble at least once in the original languages finally seems possible.

Pros: excellent tool for learning vocabulary. Nice interface, well spaced amount of repetition for vocab items. Have not yet found a better resource for frequency vocabulary learning. Cons: the grammar lessons are very short and surface level, often containing mistakes and confusing sentences. Not as great of a resource for learning grammar, as there is not nearly enough repetition in the parsing exercises before an item is marked as complete.
