In this episode of the Author Talks with Shaun Tabatt Podcast I interview Danny Zacharias about his multimedia resource The Singing Grammarian: Songs and Visual Presentations for Learning New Testament Greek Grammar (Kregel, 2011).
About the Book:
There are scores of first-year Greek grammar textbooks available for Bible college and seminary courses in biblical Greek. Far less plentiful, however, are tools that help students learn and retain the subject matter, regardless of the textbook they use. People learn in many different ways, and a multimedia approach has been underutilized in the teaching of biblical Greek. There is no better way to assist today’s New Testament Greek grammar student than The Singing Grammarian. Designed for use on video display devices or computers, this fun learning program covers the major areas of introductory Greek and the major paradigms taught to introductory students. The title of each song explains its content: The Greek Alphabet song, First Declension song, Second Declension song, Third Declension song, Definite Article song, Present Active Indicative song, Present Middle/Passive song, Future Active and Middle song, Secondary Endings (Imperfect) song, Aorist Active and Middle song, Liquid Verbs song, Passive System song, (Plu)Perfect song, Imperative song, Subjunctive song, Infinitives song, and Participles song.
These videos in Mov format can be played on many devices. On a Mac or PC, simply use Apple’s free QuickTime player for viewing. For those who want to view the videos on an iPhone, iPod, or iPad, add the videos to your iTunes library and then sync them to your device. Many Android-enabled phones as well Blackberry phones are able to play these files too; just add them to your phone. If your phone is unable to view the files, use a video converter to create a suitable format and screen size for your device. For ease in downloading your purchase, use a high-speed broadband connection and a download manager.
Danny works hard to help people understand the message of the Bible and to teach them to be responsible readers. He is also passionate about utilizing emerging technology in education. This shows in his website NTGreekResources.com, where he provides quality multimedia resources for learning Greek, including apps, videos, and songs.
Another passion is productivity and success in life’s endevours. He is a an avid reader on leadership, productivity, and business success. Danny has turned this passion in his life into eBooks for college and university students.
Danny is a graduate of Providence College (BA), Acadia University (M.A., M.Div.) and currently a Ph.D. student. He and his wife, Maria, live in Wolfville, Nova Scotia with their two sons, daughter, and cat.
