english to greek help


I just finished the chapter in my texbook on the subjunctive mood, and part of the exercises is to render five sentences from english into greek. I was hoping I could get some input on my work for the last four sentences. I realize they are probably pretty simple, but as I am working on my own, any help/input makes a big difference.

Ever thought of a "Learning Greek wiki"

Like wikipedia, but specifically about learning the language. Each wiki page could be based around lessons. I'm using White's so I could start to write up (since it's out of copywrite) the first lessons and people could add concepts, ideas and opinions to it.

If people thought it was a good idea I could host it on my site.

If people don't. I understand. :D

Greek Verb Tables

Hi all--

While taking an elementary Greek course, I found most verb paradigms cumbersomely arranged, spread across multiple pages, or akwardly organized. So I made my own verb charts with λυω, φιλεω, τιμαω, and δηλοω

I found them useful and thought you might too, so they are available as PDF files at my website http://www.brandonmason.com

Here are the direct links (I think you can gather which is which):
