How to learn Classical Greek if you are Greek?

Hi there.

I am a Greek. When I was a secondary school boy, I was one of the worst ever students in Ancient Greek (not as bad as in Physical Education, but bad enough). At that time, greek people who wanted to do science, had to learn Ancient Greek for two agonising and traumatic years!

I understand most ancient greek words, but grammar and especially syntax is a total nightmare! So, when I see an ...

Ebay heads up!

Ebay rules. I have thence bought many extremely useful items. Here are some amazing, somewhat obscure (typically episcopally) items that are to be sold soon in the ebay market:

Here is a strange item by Henry Carr Pearson author of Latin Prose Composition based on Cicero and Beginners Latin:

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=3580058684&category=29306

I myself should like to know more about this!

Strong's dictionary

Does anyone know where I can find an online Strong's dictionary that I can print out?

I printed out Strong's Greek in a nutshell and I can cut the pages and put them in a 5 1/2 by 8 binder. I would LOVE to be able to add a Strong's dictionary to the binder.

I need something in small text and WITH the phonetic pronunciations.

I like to learn languages with multiple books, but all ...

drilling endings/irregular words in Koine

I would like to drill endings by declining or conjugating out each of our vocabulary words.

in

this morning I was reading my greek-latin nt and noticed something interesting. where greek uses two different prepositions, eis and en, latin uses only one, in. So in 1 Peter 1:2 we have:

en agiasmw pneumatoj, eij upakohn kai rantismon aimatoj ihsou xristou

and

in sanctificationem Spiritus, in obedientiam, et aspersionem sanguinis Iesu Christi

with "in" functioning in place of both "en" and "eis". This causes me some distress because I know the semantic difference ...
