Frequency or root setup page

Study by Frequency

Words can be studied by how many times they occur in the New Testament. Typically introductory grammars teach the words that occur up to 50 frequency or 30 frequency. To choose your words, use the dials to create the range that you want to study, and if you want to study all the words in the same frequency, choose the same number in both dials. To keep your range so that it pre-loads the next time, check off the default box.

Study by Root(s)

An alternative way to study is to the study words by root. Every word is built off of a root, with some roots having a lot of words associated with it, and others with very few. To study by root, choose a series of roots with the dials. If you only want to study words connected to a single root, choose the same root in both dials. To keep your range so that it pre-loads the next time, check off the default box.

PRINCIPAL PARTS DRILL SETUP PAGE

Greek verbs have up to six spelling pattern variations, and the best way to recognize Greek verbs any way they might appear is to learn the spelling pattern variations, their principal parts. Use the dials to create a frequency range to drill yourself on the verb principal parts.

To remember your choice, check off the default box to study the same set later.

Study by new testament chapter SetUp Page

A great way to prepare yourself for sight reading is to first study all of the words in a biblical chapter. Choose a chapter or chapter range to drill yourself on all words in that chapter which occur 100 times or less.

To remember your choice, check off the default box to study the same set later.

Further refine your word list for study

Filter by Word Type

Once your set of vocabulary is chosen, you can further refine your choices by word type, choosing to focus on verbs, nouns, adjectives, or other types.

Exclude Words You Know Well Already

Brand new in version 2 of FlashGreek is the ability to remove from the quiz words which you have frequently answered correctly in previous study. FlashGreek keeps record of the number of times you answer a card correctly. So for example, to remove from your quiz all words that you have already identified correctly 5 times or more, insert “5” info the field.

Configure Multimedia Components

The multimedia components allows you to encounter the words in the quiz in a variety of ways, aiding you in retention.

Including Images will add the image mnemonics associated with each word. An image mnemonic combines the visual with a memorable mnemonic to trigger recall.

Including Examples will add an example from the New Testament of a verse using the word in context.

Play Audio Automatically will make the audio for the front and back of the card to play immediately. Turning this off will not remove the audio, as it can still be accessed manually in the quiz with the audio button.

Choose quiz preferences

Repeat Incorrect Answers will cause the quiz to repeat words that you answered incorrectly again at the end of the quiz.

Randomize is set as a default, and will shuffle the vocabulary randomly each time you begin a quiz. To study alphabetically, uncheck this option.

Reverse Card is a great way to further solidify vocabulary. This setting will show the English meaning first, and the Greek word as the back.

Require Correct Answers will lengthen a quiz, by requiring you to give the correct answer for a word more than one time.

Slideshow Loop is a unique way to study, and automatically uses the images and audio, but ignores the repeat correct answers and require correct answers options. The slideshow mode will continue to loop continuously, allowing you to study while on commute in a car with the audio. The delay of seconds will delay the time between the front of the card and back of the card.

QUIZ page

The top left corner indicates the number of cards to go in the quiz.

The top right corner keeps the correct and incorrect count, with the correct count being saved in the app.

The Greek word sits at the top of the page. You can tap on the word for some word information, in particular its part of speech and any English derivatives.

If chosen in the multimedia options (and if available) the grey section shows the scripture example.

If chosen in the multimedia options (and if available) the white section shows the image mnemonic.

The skip button will move immediately to the next card without including the card in the correct/incorrect count. The setup button will exit the quiz and go back to the previous setup page. The play button will (re)play the audio for the card. The Flip button will move to the back of the card. On the back of the card, the Flip button will become the Correct button.
