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.
