Χαίρετε ὦ φίλοι τῆς ἑλληνικῆς γλώττης:

It has been five years now that I started to learn Ancient Greek. In the beginning it was only to prepare for
the study of art history, my project for the time I take retirement as a radiologist. Soon it took more time than expected because of growing interest on my behalf. Last year I made my "Graecum"(GCSE?). And now I feel torn because with the help of translations ...

Material and Passwords

Thank you for the learning materials posted as pdf. They're really very useful. Just one question. I suppose there must be a reason why some pdfs don't allow editing and are blocked with a password. But does anyone have the passwords? I like to edit my pdfs, as probably you do too.

Sorry for this silly request. I was not able to find any remark on this topic.

Thank you for admitting me as a ...

karyon -- newly joined


I started learning Greek when I retired a few years ago with no plans but to enjoy the learning process. With a bit of digging I can just about figure things out but this is really different from the other languages I've tried.
I look forward to participating -- I guess it will be mostly asking!

Introduction: MrPisky

I am a student of the bible and as such have an interest in learning more about Koine Greek. I have come to this forum with a specific desire to inquire about certain passages in particular as they pertain to doctrinal and eschatological issues in which I am deeply interested.

I recently purchased a set of Greek flash cards as well as some Greek grammar materials. Unfortunately, I have not had the time available ...

Im new to the forum. Trying to learn latin by self-study. Started with Ørberg and interlinear translations. Now comes the more difficult part, i.e reading original side-by-side with translations.

Greetings from Athens to all,

I am Konstantinos 45yo, a native speaker of Modern Greek livng in Athens. Having graduated from high school back in 1990, with a concentration on the equivalent of A - levels in Ancient Greek and Latin. Unfortunately, my course of life kept me separated from both since then.

As a travel consultant for over 20 years, I am currently experiencing a desire to come close to the ancient languages once ...

Another Greekless Fly-By-Night Newbie

Greetings !!

I have been a part time student of ancient history for a little while and an amateur historian for the last 12 years stumbling around in the dark of Greek inscriptions and papyri fragments. I joined this forum to get some advice on a number of Greek language issues relating to my studies.

The first one involves one of the graffiti inscriptions from Dura Europos. I am happy to provide pics, and share ...

Odd-ball introduction


I am not quite sure why I am trying to learn Latin. Without no special gift to learn languages and being not particularly systematic I am most likely doomed to fail. Still it seems fun to me, as this is something completely different what I am doing for living. Perhaps designing LTE system and learning Latin are both speaking Greek.

BTW: Did Rome legionaries have a similar quip like S.N.A.F.U.?

Introduction: Dave Burt

Hi, I'm Dave Burt, currently studying part time at Ridley Melbourne. I finished an intro to Greek a few years ago and Hebrew last year and intend to keep growing my proficiency, but slowly because I have limited time after family, work and study commitments. Nevertheless I'm using Duolingo for modern Greek and Hebrew, and listening to audio readings (Various Koine/Reconstructed NT recordings and Haktuvim for Hebrew), and have started Buth's courses for both languages. ...
