help with exercises *9/6*

I was just working on some Greek-English exercises and I came across this:
toi=n phgai=n
it's in the dual, according to my charts. Yet isn't dual used for nouns that come in pairs like eyes, ears, nostrils, shoes, etc.?

Conversational Greek

Hello, all!

Is there any online resource about conversational Ancient Greek? My searches only yield modern Greek results.

I'm looking for basic stuff like 'hello', 'goodbye', 'how are you', weather, etc. The kind of stuff you might find in one of those little travel books.

Suggestions for a Beginner

I've decided to study Greek.





I've also decided to take 6 or 7 college courses and learn as much as I can of about 10 other languages when I have the time/energy to do it. Luckily I'm not working right now :?
