Just curious if anyone else enjoys a nice game of chess once in a while.

Learning French

Two of my children are being home-schooled.
Does any one of you know of a good French as a second language course that is suitable for home-shoolers?

In Canada the schools teach +/- 7 years of French, but very few students can read French after that.
I blame it on not getting enough reading practice. Lots of ...

So many ways to go

I've noticed in the few months I've been studying Ancient Greek that there are several words for "go." I'm wondering if there's a subtle difference between each one that someone here might be able to explain to me.

This will be the first time I'm trying to write in Greek characters here, so hopefully this will come out okay.

Here are the words for "go" that I've encountered so far:

In the Bible in 1 Corinthians 1:18, the word "SWZOMENOIS" is an adverbial participle dative plural, right? And it should be translated out as " are being saved?" Is that correct?

Section of Plato's Phaedo

Not sure if this is the right place, but as it is philosophy...

While puzzling over the meaning of 96c3-97b7 of Phaedo (in the section where Socrates recalls how he got into philosophy and became disillusioned with current ideas) I decided the gist of the argument here is that satisfactory causes cannot be found in the physical world, backed up by Plato's comments on mathematics- that you get 'two' both by adding and dividing, for ...

Question about 'Romanized' Greek words

Grammar mailings?

I find the vocabulary mailings helpful and very useful. Is there any chance of a similar system but for grammar? Ideally it would be progressive and could be extracted from one of the many such works here.
Why not a "Daily D'ooge"?
