Reviews - What do customers think about iVocab Biblical Greek: See and Hear Flashcards on Your MP3 Player, Cell Phone, and Computer?

Good, but could be better.  Aug 11, 2009
As a student of the NT who is terrible at remembering vocab i was excited to see this product. I have both Greek and Hebrew (and find the Hebrew a bit better). Mostly they are fine and the matching to given text books is very useful if you use those textbooks, but I have a few criticisms.
Firstly, whilst an auditory element is fantastic I think the pronunciation is awkward and not always accurate. It is very much an American accented pronunciation, which may be different to what others learned.
Secondly, there is a complete absence of accents! This is my constant frustration with NT Greek texts which also assume students of the NT (as opposed to Classicists) don't need to bother with such minor (not) matters. Give us accents please and make the pronunciation consistent with them.
Thirdly, it seems to me that a shuffle function is essential. The danger with any flash card system is that our brains remember the order of the English words. This product would be so much better if one could select to randomly shuffle, or to review only verbs, only prepositions, and so on.
On the up side, you can load them on your ipod/phone, not have to worry about carrying flashcards around with you, and look less dorky whilst riding the bus. I would recommend this product to beginners studying the NT, especially if you are being taught with the corresponding grammars.
Why Not?  Sep 6, 2007
I have read the Greek New Testament for over forty years. When I took First Year Greek and learned the vocabulary in Machen, we made our own flash cards and memorized them as we walked the sidewalks and stood in line for lunch. It wasn't long after that when someone printed the flash cards. When someone purchased those, he was really cool! Then came the cassette pronunciation programs and on and on it has developed. At one time, we wondered who could afford the cassette programs, because you had to own a cassette recorder! Then the flash cards went on video, and you had to have a video player. Now, to use this program, you must have an iPod. But if some stodgy old prof complains about this, then he needs to look around campus and see how many of his students already have an iPod!
And even if your parents have not yet given you one of these amazing things, you can install the program on your computer!

The first strength of this program lies in the pronunciations coupled with the visuals of both Greek and English words. Some purists will complain that it does not use the Modern Greek pronunciation. So make your own vocab program! We will still get by with old Erasmus! The second strength of the program is that it is tied to two widely used first year grammars - Mounce and Duff (one for the Yanks and one for the Brits?). But you can learn these levels of vocabulary in conjunction with any first year text. It takes you down to those words that appear 50 times in the NT and a little less.

It's a winner! But don't think it will work any "passive magic" on you! You still will have to remember what you see and hear and eventually write it down on a test or recite your translation in class. But look at it this way. Other students used to mock us Greek Geeks on campus as we walked around with our vocab cards. Now they won't mock you because it is all on a cool iPod! But who looks at their iPod when they are listening to it? Oh, well, maybe there will be another program to solve that problem!
