New Testament Greek grammar forms through simple songs. You’ll never hear that complaint from students who have had to use rote memory to learn grammar forms. It is not designed to compete with existing Greek grammar books, but to serve as a required supplemental resource for elementary Greek classes. Indeed, it has been designed to be used alongside of any introductory grammar. A professor can simply assign to his or her students any (or some) of the songs for the paradigms a particular elementary grammar employs. In this way, students will actually remember what they have learned.

A new addition to the Zondervan line of biblical Greek resources. This resource includes everything a professor or a student will need: a CD (containing eleven songs and a PowerPoint with paradigm charts for classroom use) and a booklet with the same paradigm charts for students’ personal use. Sing and Learn New Testament Greek provides a way for learning (and remembering!) New Testament Greek grammar forms through simple songs. It is not designed to compete with existing Greek grammar books, but to serve as a required supplemental resource for elementary Greek classes. Indeed, it has been designed to be used alongside of any introductory grammar. A professor can simply assign to his or her students any (or some) of the songs for the paradigms a particular elementary grammar employs. In this way, students will actually remember what they have learned. (As we are all aware, people do not easily forget something learned via song.) The entire project includes songs for indicative verb endings, participles, infinitives, imperatives, contract forms, and prepositions, among others. All but the last song can be sung in 15 seconds or less. Parsing is enormously easier through this method. And it is a lot more fun than traditional methods. (Are we allowed to even use the word “fun” in reference to elementary Greek? Absolutely!) Beginning Greek students can listen to the CD as they drive to and from school or work, or put it on their iPod. These songs are so simple that students who have used them complain about waking up in the middle of the night with the songs running through their heads. You’ll never hear that complaint from students who have had to use rote memory to learn grammar forms.

Absolutely amazing! I am a first year Greek student...now in Greek 2. This has helped me tremendously, and caused me to stand out in the class cause I know so many paradigms from memory. Btw, I've read some of the negative reviews, and in my opinion, they should be taken with a grain of salt!

I am being trained by Greek scholar, Dr. David deSilva at Ashland Theological Seminary and he has never corrected my pronunciation because of these recordings. Also, some people have commented on the speed of the recordings, as in they are too fast. Admittedly, it may seem that way when you start, but just listen to them and you'll get it...trust me. You will find that the speed helps greatly when you need to get through and entire paradigm to figure out what infinitive, for example, you're looking at. Being able to do it in 2-5 seconds is awesome! Trust me, you will be doing way better than those who don't have this!

This is proving to be so helpful with my Greek studies! I'm teaching myself Greek in order to prepare for seminary, and this has made it a whole lot easier! I showed it to my pastor and he said he probably would have done a lot better in Greek if that had been around. Highly recommend this one!

I have an hour commute, one way, and this has been an outstanding tool for optimizing that drive time. I'm up to songs 8 and 9, and it's only been a few weeks. The songs are short, with most repeated just twice or three times.

Two thumbs up for the creative arrangements, which vary and build as the song repeats -- keeps them interesting to listen to. One minor complaint is the uneven recording levels, forcing you to raise or lower the volume per song while you drive. But since you are generally working on just one song at a time, it's not a big deal.

The CD contains a printable copy of the tables in the companion booklet, so you can keep copies in different places where you listen (in your car, by the bed, at your desk at work, etc.). You'll want the tables handy to refer to as you initially learn each song.

(For non-drive times, what I've done is put the songs on my iPod Touch, and then put a copy of the tables into the Photos section. When I listen to a song, I can then just switch to the Photos section and follow along with the table. Works great when working out!)

I also recommend Sing and Learn NT Greek to those who are pursuing NT Greek later in life and are finding (as I am) that the brain doesn't memorize things as quickly as it used to. Putting it to music really helps with that (at least, it helps me).

Sing & Learn New Testament Greek helped me pass my seminary Greek 1 & 2 courses. I would have the songs replaying in my head as I was taking quizzes, it was amazing.

Dr. Berding has revolutionized not only the NT Greek learning process, but the ongoing process of retention as well. As a pastor, I have a minimal amount of time to devote to staying fresh in my Greek syntax, but I find the study of the Greek NT to be invaluable in various teaching venues. The paradigmatic songs that Dr. Berding has innovated are immensely useful to my personal endeavor to stay competent in Greek.

You will feel stupid singing these songs, but they work. Way easier than straight up memory drills.

Fun songs that really work as memory aids.
Waany what I wanted.
