Ancient Greek, To Die For

Seen posted on the Facebook wall of a young homeschooler friend beginning her study of Attic Greek:

Congratulations S.! I love that alphabet! you're right, it is beautiful. The way M. and I taught it to ourselves was by singing it to "I've been working on the railroad" it's really fun, I should show you sometime. I love Greek. and I love Latin. and I'm learning both, so I'm happy!
And later...
