create accounts but do not post - why so?

Anyone notice how many members create forum accounts but they do not post. You don't need an account to view the threads so I'm not sure why this happens.

My only thoughts are that perhaps visitors get confused with subscribing to the newsletter and registering in the forum. You need a newsletter subscription to download the keys.

The other thought is that I ask people to register on the download page. But that's with the ...

Greek Teachers' Corner

Did I or anybody posted this already?


Various teaching materials for Greek.

Most of the materials are not complete, however. I think they are only teasers.

Looking for an online catalog/list of Greek learning books

I was at a used bookstore the other day, and I saw a very nice (older, certainly out of print) book for learners of Greek. This book's strategy was to teach Greek by making the student start reading right away. There weren't many pages devoted to explanations of grammar, just reading passages. The first half of the book contained short readings (just one or a few paragraphs) and some brief exercises, and the second half ...

The Mathos Project

Hi all :)

The Mathos Project is an ongoing Ancient Greek learning aid online. Being led by Dr. Mirjam Plantinga of the University of Wales Lampeter's Department of Classics, the project is aimed at beginners level students wishing to learn Greek.

I'm going to be administrating the project from a technical aspect come this October, so I'd like to know if there is anything you'd like to ...

Violated Copyrights on Textkit?

In another forum, someone asked if we could type out the practice sentences from Wheelock for him, so he wouldn't have to buy the book. Benissimus declined, questioning the legality of such an operation. I agree with him.

But we do this all the time anyway. What about when users of Wheelock posts the questions and their attempts, and then ask for feedback? Are they not still duplicating a copyrighted text?

For example, I suspect ...

Hello from the Far East

I just happened upon this site (with a great deal of luck!) yesterday or so, and I figured I would drop in and introduce myself to everybody. I must preface myself, as I have not spoken English with another fluent individual in almost two months now, I beg your pardon if I make a few grammatical errors here or there.

I'm an American student currently studying abroad in Japan, and in the English section of ...

Dreaming in a foreign language.

I almost forgot this. But the smell of a cup of coffee I just got from a vending machine (yeah, I'm a caffeine dope) got the dream resurface:

I met a few members of textkit(alas, I cannot remember who were there) and, with them, was discussing about the pronunciation of Ancient Greek last night(or was it a few days ago?). And I was discussing it in English.
I have a very limited experience of talking ...

PDF Problem

I was just trying to download Latin Prose Composition by North and Hillard, and the PDF came up with totally blank pages. I downloaded it again just to make sure, and the same happened. It doesn't seem to happen with any of the other PDFs; maybe the new compression didn't work for the North and Hillard Composition?
