Greek Flashcards for Terms Occurring 10-50x

2018/2/10

Several years ago I created numerous flashcards for studying in my Greek Syntax class. I separated out the decks so there are around 20-40 terms per deck except when you get to words occurring 16x or fewer there are more. Previously, I used Quizlet to house everything and sync with a great app on my iPhone, Flashcards Deluxe, which has superior study tools for learning a language. But Quizlet went to a subscription model and stopped all outside apps from using their sync service. You can still find them on Quizlet here but the reason I went away from Quizlet is that on their iOS app their study tools are terrible for this language study.

Therefore, I recommend purchasing the Flashcard Deluxe app for iOS (link) or Android (link) for $3.99. Then download my sets of plain text files here and upload them to the app via Dropbox (instructions here)

Flashcards Deluxe has several different study modes:

  1. Ordered — each card is shown in order (default for new decks)
  2. Random — cards are shuffled before each round
  3. Short Term Goal — focus is given on cards you don’t know as well.
  4. Spaced Repetition — advanced learning method where cards are scheduled at timed intervals.

Personally, I prefer the Spaced Repetition model for learning the cards then the Short Term Goal for review once I have that set memorized. These models allow you to focus on a subset of the cards as you go along, which aids for better memorization.

The terms are numbered and glosses are given according to Warren Trenchard’s Complete Vocabulary Guide to the Greek New Testament
