Re: studying Greek

What is the best way to study Greek? ... Do you have any wisdom to give me? I would not have made it to the level I'm at (reading and understanding short adapted Attic passages) if I had not participated in Rob McConeghy's beginner/reviewer groups at the Latin & Greek Study Groups site (I don't thi...

Re: Poll: When did you first begin serious study of Greek

Though I took one year of Classical Greek in college many years ago, I regret to say that I wouldn't class it as "serious" study. More like, "exploratory" (I also took a year of Sanskrit, for example.) A demanding teaching career left me little time for challenging outside pursuits. I'm very happy t...

Re: Reading books for beginner

I found a book titled "Easy Greek Reader" by Evelyn Abbott on Google books. It's free to download. As a relative beginner, I've been able to read some of the selections, using, of course, a dictionary alongside.

New beginner group forming on Greek study list

A new beginner's group called Agora is starting on the Greek Study list, http://www.quasillum.com/greek/greekstudy.html, using Taylor's Greek to GSCE1. I completed book one with the group over the past year and found it to be extremely valuable for someone (like me) who needs regular weekly assignme...

Re: Which text?

[I read Textkit often but have posted little.] About a year ago I decided to attempt to again study the classical Greek I'd started oh so many years ago in college. I've downloaded and purchased a number of items and worked through a few chapters of each of the following: White's First Greek Book , ...

Re: Can't download the White answer key

Workaround was to put the words "answer key White" in the search box that appeared on the error message page. However, the key is a very limited (one page) list of only a few of the assignments.

Re: New Members Introduction Thread (New Users Post Here!)

Hello! Found this site from a link at Early Indo-European Online. I'm interested in taking up Greek again, 38 years after my Greek 1 class in college. I've always wanted to continue with it and hope to do just a tiny bit each day. I'm hopelessly busy (inner city high school Spanish teacher) but summ...
