Goes to table of contents of greek resources
Why this Page
I have no desire or ability to repeat the brilliant web pages of others who teach Greek, nor the resources of others such as William Mounce. However, as I study Greek I keep forgetting important aspects which I need to look–up – often while traveling home on the bus. Hence these pages are my "cheat" sheets which I can quickly find on my iphone or netbook. Most often I do this on the 30 minute bus ride to and from home or at lunch time while sitting in the park, either reviewing Greek vocabulary (I purchased a nice set of cards – each with a Greek word on the front and its meaning on the reverse – essentially those from Mounce's book – these always travel with me) or reading Scripture. However, some of these tables may be useful for you as well.
William (Bill) Mounce < https://www.billmounce.com/ > (accessed 6 November 2021) uses an unusual (although subscribed to by many around the world) method of teaching Greek – he demands that one understands why a word, or group of words have a particular form – so instead of learning hundreds of paradigms – or charts of words – one learns the rules that are used to construct a word, and only memorize the exceptions. This I find to my style; being a scientist, understanding the science of why, say a certain group of vowels change under certain conditions is fascination. In some ways if you study Greek this way you also study the science of linguistics.
Anki < https://ankisrs.net/ > (accessed 7 November 2021)
This is a shareware leaning tool (available as a program and app) which I believe was originally written to help the author learn Japanese. It "learns" about you as you move through the vocabulary database, making you review words early if you get them wrong and holds off on the easy words. There are a wide range of subjets including languages, medicine, science etc. put together, by dedicated volunteers. Sound media can be linked to the "flash cards" so on review you say the word then hear and see what it should have sounded and looked like. I use a database that follows Mounce's Greek "Basics of Biblical Greek Grammar", William D Mounce, Zondervan, 2003 (which has been updated). The mobile device (AnkiMobile) version has a cost attached.

Interlinear bible on the internet
Biblos has many tools and is useful for understanding translation, especially its interlinear pages. I find this site useful for learning Greek, as it either displays the Greek and holding the mouse over the word reveals the meaning or an interlinear version can be displayed. This is the Greek, Strong's and English all lined up plus the parsing of each word. (Accessed 7 November 2021)

I have not generally checked these for their doctrinal sincerity, but have found some of their resources useful.
This list is clearly nowhere near complete!
Most of these pages are simple summaries that can be printed and pasted onto 75 x 125 mm cards (3" x 5") flash cards.
