Greek VI

Hi everyone…happy August! Here is the final video of the Greek series, the one with the review of the sample words. I’m sorry this was not posted earlier, and thanks again to Sreeniketh for very kindly letting me know.

Also, it would be so nice if we could help those in need of clean and pure water during these hot summer months. If you would please like to donate to water.org, please click here.

Thank you! We will start a new language next time!

 

Greek V

Hi everyone! Happy Summer! Today we will finish up the Greek consonants, so we will wrap up our Greek rules. In the next video, we will take a look at our sample words and how all these rules apply to them.

A huge thank you to everyone who donated to my fundraiser at water.org. I am so happy to say that so far, we have helped 28 people gain access to a lifetime supply of clean and fresh water! Thank you…let’s continue to make a positive difference across the globe. To donate, please click here.

Greek IV

Hi everyone! I hope everyone’s summer has kicked off to a great start! Now that we are done with Greek vowels, we can move on to Greek consonants starting with this video. Greek has some unique consonant spellings, which can be seen in the many Greek roots out there. Spelling bees usually love to test how well you know these Greek consonant spellings, and the roots come in very handy for just that.

Also, please do not forget to donate to water.org. There are 20 days left to reach our goal, and with the hot summer approaching, we know the importance of water at this time. Please help here.

Greek II

Good morning everyone. This week we will take a look at how the vowel sounds are spelled in Greek, more specifically, the sounds pertaining to “a”, “e”, and “i.” Most of the sounds are self-explanatory, but some of them are special in Greek.

Please do not forget to donate to water.org! I wish to help some mothers this Mothers Day, and I hope you can help me with this endeavor! Please click here to donate.

Greek I

Hello…Happy Saturday! This week we will start with one of the most influential languages for the English language: Greek! Greek and Latin together comprise 60% (6 out of 10 words!) of English! It’s pretty obvious that plenty of spelling bee words stem from Greek. Greek is also home to hundreds of root words and etymologies, that are commonly used in many words today. For example, in Greek, “chrono” means time; that’s where we get the words chronological, anachronism, and synchronize from. These roots are key to understanding the spellings of Greek words, so I would suggest getting familiar with these roots and then applying them to the videos. In this video, we will take a look at the history and significance of Greek, as well as ten sample words. Enjoy!

PLEASE do not forget to contribute to water.org! It’s my dream to help others through this fundraiser, and I would really appreciate if you took a little bit of your time to help this wonderful cause. ANY contribution is welcome! To donate, please click here.
