Maybe it'll be useful for you too ...:

These are the exercises (and relevant information):

For marking on the google docs:

Highlight text and click "insert comment" for corrections or general advice. Highlighting and pressing delete or backspace will cross out the text, as though it is wrong and needs to be corrected.

Thanks, hope this is useful to you guys as it will be greatly for me ! The most pedantic criticism is encouraged!

You should fix the accents everywhere, since they are 90% wrong.

μικρα θυρα what case should you use with ἔχει?
τον σέ ἱππον besides the wrong accent, what's the difference between σύ and σός, ή, όν?
In 5 σύ is not really called for. What case does πιστεύω require?
