A few comments on Athenaze, and on reading Greek

Well, I managed, solo, to finish Athenaze, book one. I started around November 1st, 2006, and finished a week ago, last Monday. Needless to say, I feel a great deal of pride in this. When I started, I thought that I could get along using both Pharr’s Homeric Greek, and Balme’s Athenaze. I was wrong, and studied only one book. Everyday, and I mean everyday, weekdays and weekends, workdays and vacation days, I read Athenaze. ...

I assume I'm not the only one who finds that bolding helpful.

greek lower case alphabet

Hi, New member here.
I was curious if anyone knew anything about the lower case greek alphabet. I can find very little info on it. All i know is that it was apparently started in the middle ages.

Modern Greek: Would it help?

There's a question I've always wondered about, and now that we have some Modern Greek speakers posting to the forum, perhaps they could shed some light on it for me.

There are of course many resources available to learn Modern Greek; I've downloaded the 3-volume course from http://fsi-language-courses.com/ for example, tapes and all. Before really getting into it, though, I was wondering how much of a help (or hindrance) ...
