Problems with Ancient Greek Tutorials

Hello all

Have any of you downloaded the Ancient Greek Tutorials program from the Mastronarde site? I have, and some of the modules do not work. The principal parts module is fine but not the English to Greek, which is my favourite. I am doing something wrong?

thanks for any help

Key to Elementary Greek Exercises

Hello Friends

I am looking for the Key to Elementary Greek Exercises by Hillard and Botting. I have not been able to find it. Focus and Duckworth which both publish the text do not print the Key. I am doing self study and I sure would like to know if I have the correct answers.

thanks

At school I spoke the classical dialect, but at church it would, of course, be ecclesiastical. To me, the church dialect was intrinsically more pleasant to the ear. Now for those who prefer the classical pronunication....good for you.

But let us not forget.
