Beginning Ancient Greek: A Visual Workbook

Wayz Press
Free sample

This highly visual and full-colour workbook takes you, step by step, through the process of learning the Greek alphabet. It uses several strategies to help learners achieve mastery quickly and thoroughly. These strategies include:

grouping

visual mnemonics

test questions to help you practice

vocabulary lists for reading practice.

These vocabulary lists appear for each group of letters, so you can practice on words that only use the letters you have learned. To make them easier to read (and also, beneficially, remember), the words are mostly related to English words. Thus you can not only practice your letters, but also pick up some 800 words as well. Where the meaning of the words is less obvious, mnemonic keywords are provided.

The workbook includes:

instruction on learning the individual letters

visual and story mnemonics for learning the order of the alphabet

targeted vocabulary lists

full glossary with word meanings and mnemonics where appropriate

a special section of words that provide roots used in English medical and scientific vocabulary.

About the author

Fiona McPherson has a PhD in cognitive psychology, from the internationally-regarded Psychology Department at the University of Otago. She has spent the decades since that achievement following the research into how the human brain thinks and learns and remembers, and communicating that knowledge and its practical implications to a lay audience. She has done this through her long-running and extensive websites (memory-key.com and mempowered.com), and her books. Her guiding principle is that people are more likely to use effective strategies if they understand how and why they work, and know precisely when and when not to use them.
