Links to resources for teaching Greek specifically to children
Children are in the best stage in life to learn foreign languages. There are many resources for helping teach your children Greek especially if you don't mind mixing and matching ancient and modern Greek.
- Greeknstuff.com This site offers an number of tools for learning the alphabet. Chart, puzzels and workbooks.
- Ancient Greek Background (for kids) This site has many links to games for learning Greek history and mythology.
- MythWeb This site introduces ancient Greek mythology with funny cartoons.
- The Gods and Goddesses of Ancient Mythology This site has descriptions of who's who in ancient mythology.
- Greek Kids This site has a wonderful selection of learning and entertainment resources for modern Greek. I especially recommend the Bilingual Baby video for ages 3-6 & parents.
- The Greek Language Museum This site offers a fantasic CDRom that is full of fun Modern Greek education games. There are plenty of sample games on the site to play and learn. I would recommend this for ages 5 and up. (Or as early as the child learns how to handle a computer mouse.) Again these are great educational games.
- Living Koine Greek Introduction Part One with 1 MP3 CD Randall Buth has produced a fantastic curriculum for all ages. This books has over 1000 pictures with an MP3 CD that takes you through the book. It is fantastic simply to look at the pictures and listen. I've spent a fair amount of time simply reviewing 20 pictures over and over again with my kids when they were 4, 6, and 8. (I also require it of my college students.)
