Extra Reading Greek grammar exercises

Postby steffi.alexa » Sun Oct 03, 2010 11:24 am

Are there any online grammar exercises for Reading Greek? I've done the ones in the book up to the point my class is at but I'd ideally like more

Check out these audio drills:

Put these on your MP-3 player. Repeat the phrases during the pauses. Get to the point where you can write out and speak the entire passage off the top of your head. Record your own audio drills.
I am writing in Ancient Greek not because I know Greek well, but because I hope that it will improve my fluency in reading. I got the idea for this from Adrianus over on the Latin forum here at Textkit.

Sorry I've taken a month to reply!

Thanks for those, are there any more? I haven't started section 5 yet :(

I'm still trying to get to grips with memorising the grammar. Hopefully I'll get there.

Maybe you can try the exercises at this site under English-Greek section.
It may be for Mastronarde's book but it can serve as a great addition to your studies.

You might also find it helpful to take the vocabulary of the chapter you're currently in
and create sentences mimicking the grammar of the written stories. I remember it
helped me a lot when I used the book briefly last year. :)
