Hello everyone! There is a new JACT group starting up on the Greekstudy list, and I'm thinking about joining. I'm a beginner/dabbler with Greek, though I have a little Latin (via Lingua Latina and Linney's Latin Class) so I am not unfamiliar with declensions, etc. I was originally hoping to start with Homer, and had bought "A Reading Course in Homeric Greek". I completed to lesson 16, but stopped last year.
The schedule for JACT will be a section a week, so the first assignments are 1a, 1b, 1c, ... with a seperate week for grammar exercises. Would it be possible to go ahead and start JACT in 2 weeks, but do the Reading Course in Homeric Greek as well? Would it help or be confusing? At the groups pace, if I did the Homeric Greek course quickly I would finish the "grammar" portion while the JACT group was in section 2, and the entire book while the JACT group was in section 3.
I've read its good to have a grammar supplement with JACT, but would using a Homeric grammar be confusing?
My goal is to read ancient Greek, from Homer to the New Testament. I can throw some time at Greek this summer, probably up to an hour a day on most days.
Thank you all,
