Make small cards of every form in the paradigm (LUW, LUEIS,LUEI etc.). Make
for the whole paradigm the scheme as it is in the grammar, but without the
individual forms that are written on the small cards. Write only the name of
the time, mood .... (present indicative) or the translation of the first
form (I loose), but leave under it enough space in order to put the cards of
that time, mood ... there.
Mix the cards. Try to place the small cards where they belong in the scheme.
This is only a drill to find the place of the Greek, Hebrew .... forms and
to match them with the translation or the right time.
The following step would be learning the entire conjugation. But you are
already familiar with the forms and their place in the scheme.
