Yesterday I gave a talk on the graded reader ideas at BibleTech.

Here is a video of my talk.

The abstract:

We will discuss a new approach to language learning based on texts, with a special focus on learning Greek from the New Testament.

We will be covering how various linguistic analyses of a text such as the Greek New Testament can help determine the order in which vocabulary and grammar is introduced and how each new word or grammatical concept can be shown in the context of the text.

Lastly, we will also discuss various algorithms that have been implemented as well as open source Python code for producing this new kind of graded reader.
