Anki Greek and Hebrew flashcard resources

A message about some of the latest language flashcard resources from my friend Rene Hamburger:


If you were planning to revise your Greek or Hebrew vocab or grammar, using Anki might be a great help!

Anki is probably the best and most popular free flashcard testing program that is available for a large number of platforms (e.g. Windows, Max, Linux, iPhone, Android). One of the great advantages over other programs is that it supports an automatic sync over the internet. So you can use it at home or on your smartphone on the go, and your flashcards will always be in sync!

If you are using paper cards, you might well want to stick with them. But there are actually several advantages testing software like Anki has over paper cards. Firstly, it is much better than us in keeping track of when certain cards should be reviewed next, so you are less likely to waste time reviewing cards you know very well (which will be a few hundred cards even after the first year of Greek or Hebrew) and less likely to forget cards, you didn’t review early enough. Secondly, there are lots of mnemonics on the vocab cards I uploaded, which again will make the memorisation much easier. Thirdly, it may save you time creating your own flashcards (which is, of course, not a bad way to learn them…).

If you want to give it a go:

  • Download Anki
  • Download one of the shared decks I put online (“File | Download | Shared Deck” on the desktop version of Anki):
    • “NT Greek Vocab (Oak Hill College)” Vocab following lists from Duff & Trenchard (about 1200 words)
    • “Biblical Hebrew Vocab (Oak Hill College)”:  Vocab following lists from Kelley & Mitchel (also about 1200 words); this appears to be currently the only Hebrew vocab list available for Anki that works on Android.
    • “NT Greek Grammar (Oak Hill College)”:  Grammar summary of Duff, so very basic
    • “Biblical Hebrew Grammar (Oak Hill College)”:  Grammar summary largely following Kelley. This file does not work on Android yet, but the other three do.
  • For fonts you may need or for how to set it up on Android, follow the instructions which can be found in the “shared deck” download dialog and on the first card of the deck.

Enjoy!
Rene

  • Donald Robinson Selected Works volumes 3 and 4Donald Robinson on the Origins of the Anglican Church League
    History matters. It makes us question things we take for granted, it helps us to understand who we are, and it gives us a broader perspective on the issues we face today. One example – relevant for evangelical Anglicans, especially in Sydney – is an essay in Donald Robinson Selected Works, volume 4 (recently published by the Australian Church Record and Moore College). The essay is called “The Origins of the Anglican Church League” (pp. 125–52). It’s a republication of a paper given in 1976 by Donald Robinson (1922–2018), former Moore College Vice-Principal and later Archbishop of Sydney. In the paper, Robinson traces some of the currents and issues that led to the formation of the Anglican Church League in the early twentieth century. The essay is classic Donald Robinson: full of surprises, yet definitely still worth reading today to help us gain perspective on issues for evangelical Anglicans past and present.
