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 ...

Latin pronunciation samples?

As this is my first post here, an introduction: I learned some Latin in high school Way Back When, and am now beginning to study it again to start teaching it to my homeschooled sons next year. (We'll be going slowly at first, so I'm sure to stay waaay ahead of them! This first year will be as much for English grammar and word roots as for the Latin language per se, anyway.)

I would ...

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.

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 ...

A hard choice

Hello, everyone,

I'm studying Latin for half a year now. Since I do it for my own entertainment, I don't hurry. However, now it seems like I face a hard choice. I use a Russian coursebook. Two, actually, switching between them from time to time. I like the books and I think they are the best ones available in Russian: Lingua Latina by Podosinov and Shchaveleva and Latinsky yazyk by Katzman and Pokrovskaya. However, both ...
