Part Two-A, which comes with 5 hours of audio material, is a kind of “home language lab” appropriate for self-learning from a high school level and higher. The 277 audio tracks, including substitution drills, vocabulary introduction, dialogs, and readings, introduce and reinforce the learning at the speed of speech, enabling long-lasting internalization of the language. Special listening build-up tracks prepare the student to understand longer reading passages while listening.

Part Two-A contains six chapters of dialogues which augment the readings of the parables of the Lost Coin (Lk 15:8-10), the Great Banquet (Lk 14:16-24), the Lost Sheep (Lk 15:3-7), and the Vineyard (Mt 21:33-41). The Lord’s Prayer is memorized as well.

All Greek vocabulary, dialogues, and texts are glossed in English and grammatical explanations are in English. As a bonus for discriminating students, there are extensive footnotes throughout that deal with the development of the language and the stylistic functions of Koine Greek structures, many of which are typically only covered in advanced grammar books.
