That sounds faintly like "When pigs fly" though I understand what is meant.  Catchy title.

… search for truth, hear truth, 
learn truth, love truth, speak the truth, hold the truth, 
defend the truth till death.

- Jan Hus

Another book on using verbal methods for Greek (and Latin) is the book "When dead tongues speak: teaching beginning Greek and Latin"  By John Gruber-Miller, Oxford Press, 2006. Preview available on Google Books at  

Look at chapter 8 "Ancient Greek in Classroom Conversation" by Paula Sapphire. This looks like a must read for anyone interested in the why and how. Has anyone read this yet?
