課堂程序

每一節上課時段大概都包含以下內容:問題解答;測驗;和教授新材料。

 

課程作業

·       一般上課開始時段同學都會做測驗,測驗內容一般都包括文法、生字和翻譯三部分。生字部分包括Mounce(課本和習作本)和任何其他我事前指定的生字清單。所有測驗的內容都是次第累積。測驗於上課開始時派發,除緊急事故外,錯過測驗都不能補考。如事先知道無法參與測驗,同學需要儘早通知老師,安排其他時間完成測驗。

·       The student should have completed the assigned exercise in the Workbook before each class period (with the exception of the 1st class, see Course Calendar). Translation exercises may be done in English or in Chinese and should be checked against various versions, although the point is really to be able to justify your own translation of the Greek text. Answers to the grammar exercises should be checked against Mounce’s Grammar. Do not erase the incorrect answers that you’ve put in. Instead, simply cross them out and write down the correct answers alongside the incorrect ones in your Workbook. The Workbook will be submitted to the Instructor for grading.

·       There will be an Oral Exam during the quarter. The times and signup will be announced in class. Each student will come to my office to recite the Greek alphabet and read an arbitrary Greek passage from 1 John 3 (about 6 full lines in UBS4). The exam will be graded according to the fluency of the reading and the correctness of pronunciation according to the standard given in class. A sign-up sheet will be posted later for the purpose.

 

·       Given the amount of material to be covered, the pace of this course will be rather brisk. It is important that each participant understands what he/she is committed to. A new language can only be learned by constant exposure and practice. Both the learning and the learning experience will be greatly discounted if learning only takes place within the setting of the class gathering. Students are also encouraged to study and review in groups outside of class. However, each should work on his/her own exercises instead of relying on others to supply the answers.

 

互聯網資源

1.     Bill Mounce

Go and check out billmounce.com for all the resources (free and otherwise) Bill Mounce posts there.

2.     邱老師

One of the best online resources for learning and review of basic biblical Greek is http://www.chioulaoshi.org/. The site has quite a lot of audio-video material on biblical Greek that follows the order of our textbook. The author is a former student of Bill Mounce. The site is actually part of an online course the author runs regularly, but browsers who do not want to enroll can benefit from quite a bit of it too.

 

For our first two classes, you could go directly to the page: http://www.chioulaoshi.org/BGreek/Lesson01/lesson01.html and click on the links under 第一課: 字母與發音. There 邱老師, speaking in Mandarin, tells you how to pronounce the Greek alphabet using what we now call the Erasmian pronounciation. This will give you a head start in our course. You will also find a link on the same page giving Bill Mounce’s reading of 1 John 1:5-2:5.

 

3.     B-Greek Forum

如果有興趣,你可以參與網上討論聖經希臘文的平台,例如 B-Greek Forum. 你開始的時候不一定明白這些發燒友在討論些什麼,但慢慢你會明白他們之間的討論和辯論,從中吸收對聖經希臘文的知識。這是一個文化浸淫的經驗,長遠對掌握新約希臘語會有裨益。

 

4.     希臘字體輸入

同學們應該學會直接輸入希臘字體而不是從“符號”清單上挑選希臘字母來貼上。Right-click Windows桌面的右下角的語icon,選“settings”,選“Greek”,加入“Keyboard – Greek polyphonic”,完成。同學亦可從Control Panel,選“Region and Language”,然後再進入“Keyboards and Languagestab

 

至於鍵盤的編排和如何輸入「變音符/重音符號(diacritical marks)」,可GoogleMicrosoft Greek Polytonic Keyboard Layout”下載相關的pdf文件。
