Hey, Andrew! Teach Me Some Greek!-Level 3 Set Review

http://www.greeknstuff.com/info/infoGR-03-WB.html



One of the many things I love about homeschooling is being able to give my children a variety of topics to learn. Recently, my son has been learning Greek from Greek‘n’ Stuff with Hey, Andrew! Teach Me Some Greek!-Level 3 Set.

This seemed like a good fit to enhance his Biblical study as he already knows Biblical Hebrew and learning Biblical Greek just seems like it will enhance his future studies even more.  

Hey, Andrew! Teach Me Some Greek!-Level 3 Set that I received comes with the following items:

Hey, Andrew! Teach Me Some Greek!-Level 3 Workbook
Hey, Andrew! Teach Me Some Greek!-Level 3 “Full Text” Answer Key
Pronunciation CD for Hey, Andrew! Levels 3-4

Hey, Andrew! Teach Me Some Greek!-Level 3 Set is recommended for grades 4 and up.  

Hey, Andrew! Teach Me Some Greek!-Level 3 “Full Text” Answer Key:

This is essential with teaching Greek as it will give you all the correct answers for the 36 Lessons and several other helpful components for you to teach your students.

They have a recommended schedule of completing one page a day and doing flashcards daily. A lesson can be completed in a one week.

The first part of the book has teaching tips if needed for a particular lesson and a section of the vocabulary that needs to be reviewed.

Following this section the lesson are laid out like the student workbook that has the answer key for you to check your student’s work.

The last few pages are dedicated to the Appendix which has a glossary of all the words learned in the workbook. They also include charts and tips: Greek Alphabet, Vowels and Diphthongs, Punctuation, Breathing Marks, Word Order, Moods of the Greek Verb, Voices of the Greek Verb, Present Tense, Gender of the Greek Noun, Cases of the Greek Noun, Second Declension, and recommendations of Greek Bible Copy Work. There is an index to look up something quickly and Flashcard Tips

Hey, Andrew! Teach Me Some Greek!-Level 3 Workbook:

This is a spiral bound workbook and it lays out flat when you have it opened. The copyright is not intended to be copied so you will need one book for each student.

 There are 36 Lessons in this curriculum. If you haven’t done the other levels in the program you will get a quick overview on the 24 Greek Alphabets. Lessons 1 and 2 are dedicated to a quick review of the letters. It gives you three lines for writing the letter and gives you the name of the Greek letter along with the pronunciation.

Lesson 2 and 3 is for reviewing the vocabulary that you learned in Levels 1 and 2. This is nice review if you haven’t used the previous levels. The following lessons will cover sentences, accents and breathing marks, you will progress into words, present active tense, genitive case, and other grammar structures of Greek.

The back of the book has the same appendix as the answer key with the exception of the flashcards.

The pages are in black and white. There is ample space for writing. There is a reminder on each page to practice your flashcards and to add the new flashcard. You just check off the box.



Pronunciation CD for Hey, Andrew! Levels 3-4:

The CD is for Level 3 and Level 4. The first track on the CD is the Greek alphabet song which is sung. The Paper in the CD has the track # to what page # in the workbook go together. The CD will have the pronunciation of words from the lesson.

My Thoughts and how did I Use Hey, Andrew! Teach Me Some Greek! - Level 3 Set?

I spent a short time looking over the material. This is what I call and open and go curriculum. The lessons are short and you don’t need much prepping other than gathering the flashcards for the lesson and making sure you have the CD ready to play. The book is straight forward and easy to implement. You are going to want to cut out the flashcards.


A typical lesson looks like this. I’ll give you two examples:

A vocabulary word is introduced in Greek and underneath the world is the meaning and a transliteration.  After that you write down the meaning of the Greek word yourself in the space provided.

After that the exercise vary some from you circling the words the you have learned to matching the meaning of the word to the Greek word, matching sentences, cross word puzzle, and other exercises.


Every day like I mentioned earlier you do the flashcards. You need to look at the CD to know when you do the CD with a particular lesson. It would be nice to include that information in the work text also.


Writing the vocabulary word out in Greek is one lesson throughout the work text for all the Lessons. They provide 16 spaces for you to do this exercise. The word is already written out for you at the top of the page.

That is what a typical lesson entails. 

You can purchase a Quizzes and Exams  separately from the set and the Flashcards on a Ring. There are a few other components you can add to enhance your students Greek studies.

I used this with my 11 year old son whom is in 6th grade.

I ended up spending another week going on the Greek alphabet as my son hasn’t done any Greek prior to this. He didn’t feel comfortable enough to continue after the first 2 lessons. However, I felt he knew the alphabet well enough not having to do this. I wanted him to be confident before we moved on.

With use still being in summer mode I try to only do school three days a week. The lessons are actually fairly quick no more than 20 minutes on a lesson.  Which consisted of the workbook, flashcards, and listening to the CD.

We are in Lesson 4 currently. I feel that my son is catching on quickly. At this point I plan on continuing this into our school year. It sure is a lot easier than I imagined it to be. My son hasn’t complained about doing the work. He felt that the pace is good and not overwhelming. He thinks they need more review provided for the alphabet. If you have done the previous levels then this wouldn’t be an issue. My son thought it would beneficial to have all the Greek letters on a chart so that they are all on one page. That way the chart is in front of him until he is comfortable with the alphabet. It could be that this is available and I haven’t looked into it yet.

I’m all for using the Biblical language for letting my son read God’s word in the original text. I love that my son can pick up a Bible in Hebrew and read it. Maybe one day he can pick up our interlinear Bible and read it in Greek.

Other members of the Homeschool Review Crew are reviewing Hey, Andrew! Teach Me Some Greek!-Level 2 Set and many of the Bible studies available from Greek ‘n’ Stuff. Stop by and see what they have to say.
