Readers and Grammars?

Postby dilmunite » Fri Aug 03, 2018 8:09 am

Hello guys
Just a question... Not too difficult one
I'm picking back Ancient Greek after long years (I need it for graduate school in the fall of 2019) and actually it goes very fast (I studied it for long years); I could go through the two volumes of Athenaze quite effortlessly, but I'm definitely not ready for real text and though I can read quite fast, I feel many details of grammar are a bit vague, so I'd like to practice more. Do you have any suggestions for easily findable (online) readers/books I can use at this stage? I live in Turkey so access to this kind of books is really bad.
I'd appreciate any suggestions.

Some good downloadable readers:


For grammars, I recommend looking on Google Books or archive.org for Goodwin's Grammar, Smyth's, and Kaegi's. Smyth is also on Perseus in a digital version.
