Parsable Greek New Testament « Previous  •  Next » Smyth's Grammar

The best way to become proficient in pronouncing Greek is to read it out loud. This is most effective because it engages your faculties of thought, speech and hearing together, martialing your God-given resources in the learning process toward the goal. Speech is a very prominent aspect of the image of God in us. Use it well.

How to proceed

Once you have studied and learned the alphabet from Chapter 3, p.8 of the Mounce text, or p.5 of the summary, find a passage of Scripture either in your Greek New Testament, if you have one, or from the selections in your workbook. Then begin to read the text out loud as best you can, referring back to the alphabet as necessary to check yourself. Practice with your study partner(s) often.
