Introducing the Greek Alphabet

Learn how to read out loud each letter of the alphabet, and learn the order of the alphabet.

When you flip through a dictionary, look for your name in a list, or scan through a list of words, inside your head, you are mentally relying on the fact you have internalized the order of the alphabet.

The way children learn the alphabet is through memorization of an alphabet song. I am not a great singer, and I don’t enjoy singing, but because I know this is the best way to internalize the order of the alphabet. So that is what we will do now.

Biblical Greek Alphabet Song

Find a place where you are comfortable singing out loud and sing along with this song until you can sing it from memory without needing to watch the video. You could sing along in your head, but there is something about singing out loud that helps speed along the memorization process.

Self-Evaluation

I would recommend singing this song 3-4 times per day for the next few days until you can internally/mentally iterate over the alphabet comfortably in your head.

You can start the next lesson before you have finished memorizing the song. So feel free to jump to the next lesson on writing the Alphabet as soon as you would like.
