I have a friend who has expressed a desire to learn Greek.  He is retired and will not be going to a seminary or school someday.  So what Logos product do you think I should suggest to him so he can learn Greek on a self-study basis?  He has zero knowledge about biblical languages; just a burning desire to learn.

What about: The Original Word Teaching Series I: Introduction to New Testament Greek?

We have a few beginning Greek grammars.  Perhaps some who have worked with them can give their opinion.

It's pleasing to see that Logos staff (the Logos logo is missing!) can make a mess from pasting text!

I'm just beginning to learn Greek and have chosen the Learn to Read  NT Greek by D. A. Black and added today an audio book - Greek Audio NT by John Schwand which I just downloaded today. My theory is that learning to read Greek will require some development in pronouncing these words correctly, as well.

What helped me liked no other beginning Greek resource(s) and I tried many of them is Bill Mounce's "Greek for the Rest of Us."  It is not part of a Bible software program but reading the book and watching/listening to the accompanying cd lectures gave me a great understanding of Greek so that I could more readily use BDAG, TDNT and other Greek lexica.  Here's a link to Biblical Training Org which offers many free classes and one is Mounce's Greek Tools which is essentially his Greek for the Rest of Us package:

Or the book itself:

http://www.amazon.com/Greek-Rest-Us-Mastering-Biblical/dp/0310282896/ref=sr_1_5?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1248977538&sr=1-5

So this is off topic as far as not being exactly Logos software.  However, because of Mounce's class, I have purchased more Logos Bible software and use it with more confidence.  And yes, there are probably some drawbacks to his system but it is the best I could do for my age, limitations and where I live.  Hope this helps.
