articles on teaching ancient languages to children

Can anyone link me to articles on teaching ancient languages to children, particularly OLDER ones geared to the idea of a child becoming fluent in both Latin and Greek BEFORE entering university?

There are a glut of books coming out about a classical education for children, but they are not right for our family. The focus is on LOTS of writing, outlining and reading fiction. My math orientated child is willing to do a BIT ...

ginomai, gegona, gegenomhn: overlapping forms?

Is ginomai a deponent verb?

In that case how can it have a form both for perfect active gegona
and a form for perfect passive/middle gegenhmai? Is not just one form enough? The same seems to happen with the aorist with egenomhn and egenhthen.

Could anyone translate these forms so that I can see the difference between them or provide meaningful examples?

Netscape and SPIONIC

Hi All,

A simple question for any of you using a Mozilla browser to view textkit: do you see SPIONIC text as greek glyphs?

If so, would you be so kind as to post the requisite browser settings?

I cannot get NN 4.7 or 7.0 to behave. I have no difficulties with IE.

Thanks.

Cordially,

Paul
