The Sound of Classical Greek

Postby Johny Ze » Fri Jan 28, 2005 2:18 am

Hey everyone, I've been learning Classical Greek through the textbook, Athenaze, which for me at least, has been a great learning tour. However, I would like to get my hands on some tapes or CDs of someone who is reading classical Greek. I have the pronounciation guides in the books I own, but I would really like to hear the sounds. Does anyone know of a website, or some tapes I can order, or something I can burn a copy off of? Or send tapes to someone who would be willing to record some passages? Anyways, thanks for the help!!

John

ps - I plan on participating more as my knowledge gets better. Currently, though my cpu is not working with the fonts for Greek right now, something is not working right! Thanks again!

Hi, JZ.

The important thing is to make sure they're telling you the real pronunciation. If you hear any th-sounds or f-sounds, the pronunciation is false.

Here are some good sites:
