I really ought to put up a review of it.
...I've sort of been collecting these things.

2) The iota subscript is pronounced in the recordings.
As for courses with audio materials, two cross my mind: Assimil's Le grec ancien, and Athenaze in English and Italian.
2) Athenaze teaches Attic mainly, but the second edition of its English version has quite some other things, such as excerpts from the New Testament. It is intended to make the course more enjoyable, but will it actually hinder the acquisition of the Attic dialect? As far as I know, it is better for beginners to treat each dialect as absolutely distinct constructs and focus on a single dialect.
