New method for learning/teaching Greek. Feedback desired.

Hello all,

I'm developing a novel way to teach and learn Greek. I have a website where this method can be explored.

http://www3.telus.net/norbertre/index.html

You need a Polytonic Greek unicode font to be able to read the stories. There are links on the site where you can download them.

My approach is to teach paradigms and vocabulary in a story context. The user can interact with controls and select things like plural/singular, 1,2 and 3rd person, ...

Pro\j qoukudi/dou qiasw/taj :)

e)/rrwsqe.
I'd like to ask you a question about a difficult -and famous- point in Thucydides. In Qoukudi/dou I(storiw=n V.89.10 (from Melians' dialogue), we read ta\ dunata\ d' ec w=)n e(ka/teroi a)lhqw=j fronou=men diapra/ssesqai. Which verb is the phrase ta\ dunata\ related to? Isn't diapra/ssesqai the object of fronou=men? Of course, in order to answer my question, one must bear in mind the whole text of this chapter. Thank you in advance.

two Thetas

I have run across two ways of writing a Theta in the same piece.
One looks "normal", like so; q
The other one is leaning back and the bottom left side is open.
Why?

need some help with grammar

Hi,

I came across some tricky passages of a work by Dion Chrysostomos. The text is part of a school book I use and there it says that it is taken from D. Chr. IX 14-16 and the authors may have changed some passages...

What poetry to read for a Greek beginner?

I've just finished J. W. White's First Greek Book and am about a quarter way into North and Hillard's Greek Prose Composition. I'd really like to start reading some poetry in Greek.

Being a little bit further in latin I've taken to Cattulus and find it quite do-able; I'm looking for something similar in Greek.

Recommendations anyone?
