Greek to GCSE

How much do you all know about this text? Is it useful, quick, and easy like Athenaze (although this I'm certain isn't a reading text), and will it get me reading Ancient Greek prose and verse authors?

Digital tutorial on White's First Greek Book

http://www.chlt.org/FirstGreekBook/

A review of a new book on digital classics criticizes the choice of FGB rather than the digital tutorial itself:
"For his part, Rydberg-Cox makes a compelling case for widely available, digital resources for learning ancient Greek (especially for the benefit of students geographically removed from elite universities). Yet he does not provide enough evidence that his own interactive Greek textbook is educationally effective. Despite its long list ...

Morices Attic stories ἰχθῦς?

οἱ τοίνυν ἰχθῦς, ὅταν παρίωσι, προσνέουσι τοῖς πουλύποσιν ἀδεῶς, ὡσεὶ πέτραις.

A syntactic point not found in Dickey

Smyth, sec. 2631:

2631. In subordinate temporal and relative clauses the infinitive is often used for the indicative or optative by attraction to an infinitive standing in the principal clause after a verb of saying. In some cases ἔφη may be mentally inserted.

ἔφη . . . ἐπειδὴ δὲ γενέσθαι ἐπὶ τῇ οἰκίᾳ τῇ Ἀγάθωνος, ἀνεῳγμένην καταλαμβάνειν τὴν θύραν he said that, when he arrived at the house of Agathon, he found the door open ...

Using Dickey's Intro to the Comp and Analysis of Greek Prose

I am starting this thread. It is my thread and I set the rules. If you don't like it, you can post in the other thread on Dickey, or you can start your own thread.

Rule One: The only people who are allowed to post in this thread are people who own the book and are using it or seriously intend to use the book.

That's the only rule.

Lingua Graeca per se Illustrata

https://sites.google.com/site/linguagra ... trata/home

I looked for references to this website on the forum, but couldn't find any. There are some interesting materials freely available. I don't know if it is a ongoing project. I surely hope it is.

A book from the same author was also published recently. It is called Dialogos:

Are there any good Greek textbooks similar to Wheelock?

Hi guys, I'm just finishing Wheelock, and trying to pick up some Greek, is there anything besides From Alpha to Omega that is similar to Wheelock. I've tried a lot of books, but I haven't been successful.

Hello everyone!

Kind regards to ...
