Athenaze

Book 1

In addition to the material contained on this web site there are quite a few additional resources that students can use to master the material contained in each chapter of Athenaze. These resources can be divided into three groups; recommended books, online texts, and recommended links. Frequently, our pages will reference these recourses. This page is basically our bibliography of additional resources that we reference. This list is merely the resources that we think are the best suited for our additional exercises that correspond to the Athenaze series. Please browse the links in our header for larger collections of recourses.

Online Texts (FYI)

Classical Greek texts are fairly easy to find online. Below is a quick list of online sites that provide classical Greek texts. Many of the sites offer additional helps and tools for the classical texts such as quick parsing, (click or rollover words to see grammatical parsing) and translations.

English to Greek Dictionary (Woodhouse) - This site will search and display the appropriate page of Woodhouse's English-Greek Dictionary. This dictionary is a must for composition and this site allow people to use it without paying the $85 to buy it.

Perseus Parsing Tool - This tool will parse any Greek word. The tricky part is using their chart to type in the correct Roman letters which correspond to their Greek font. The little program which allows you to pick Greek letters from a palette doesn't work with eta and omega.

A Greek Boy at Home (online text) - W. H. D. Rouse. A Greek Boy at Home. Blackie and Son, 1909.

This is a graded continuous and entertaining narrative, which would make a great supplement to any curriculum. Long out of print, so here is a pdf of the whole thing (22mb). You can also download the vocabulary for this book, which contains many Greek synonyms instead of English equivalents This reader is meant to accompany his First Greek Course, also in pdf for download.

Greek to Greek Lexicon - W. H. D. Rouse produced a Greek to Greek glossary for his educational text, A Greek Boy at Home. This is a fun and helpful tool in its own right. This is a link to a pdf of the volume.

First Greek Course, (Rouse's Grammar) - W.H.D. Rouse's Greek Boy at Home was intended to be used in conjunction with his grammar. This is a pdf of that grammar.

Spiphanies - This is a fantastic audio gateway site for ancient Greek. There are many links to audio recordings for almost every classical Greek curriculum.

σχολή - SCHOLE - This is an amazing forum. It is all in ancient Greek, where you can at once make the acquaintance of others who want to dialogue with each other in voice and written notes and share information about using ancient Greek as a real vehicle of communication. Don't be intimidated by all of Greek on the homepage. It is just part of immersion and everyone there has the same goal as you -- learning Greek.

LSJ Online Lexicon - This lexicon is fast and allows you to search in the meaning for English words as well, so you can use it as a reverse lexicon for composition if you want.

Additional Links (FYI)

The following list of links includes a number of online tools and aids that students may find helpful but may not be directly referenced in this site's additional resources and materials for Athenaze.

Perseus Classics - This is the king of online classics websites. This website has many tools in addition to the long list of Greek texts and translations. There are many different display options in order to see the Greek text. Click on "Configure display" in the upper left corner to adjust the language and font. I prefer to select Unicode font with pre-combined accents. Not only does it look the best, but you are able to cut and paste the Greek into your word processing documents. The only tricky part is to make sure that you use a Unicode font in your document like Palatino Linotype or you may see boxes or question marks. Minion Pro is my favorite Unicode font click here for instructions on how to get it and other fonts.

Thesaurus of the Greek Language - Collected and digitized most literary texts written in Greek from Homer to the fall of Byzantium in AD 1453. There is a free trial section.

MIT Classics - Use the dropdown menu to view the texts they have available online.

Lucian's True History - This is a good text for transitioning from reading Koine Greek to Classical Attic Greek. You will have to download the font for this site here.

Easy Aesop's Fables - This site collects some easy readings of Apollodrous from the Perseus web site. It is a nice collection for those looking to expand their skills outside of the New Testament. See their other selections from Plato and Lysias et. al. here.

Berkeley Greek Tutorials - Great grammar and vocabulary drills free online.

Herbert Weir Smyth, A Greek Grammar for Colleges - This is the standard grammar for classical Greek. This online text is provided by the Perseus Project. You can download a pdf version from Textkit. Smyth

Goodwin, Greek Grammar - This is the other standard grammar for classical Greek. It is available via a PDF download from Text-kit.

Jeffrey A. Rydberg-Cox, Overview of Greek Syntax - Online grammatical text through Perseus

Goodwin, Syntax of the Moods and Tenses of the Greek Verb - Online text through Perseus

Greek Teacher's Corner - Links to a number of resources to assist the instruction of Classical Greek

Bryn Mawr Classical Review - There are some nice reviews of Greek grammatical books on this site. You can simply search for the title or author in the keyword search box.

Unbound Bible - Greek Word Parser - Enter the word which is troubling you (according to their transliteration scheme) and the program will give you the possible grammatical parsings.

καλός conjugator program - This is a freeware program that will conjugate verbs.

World-Wide Ancient Greek - This site has many Greek grammatical and reading resources by Cecelia Lushnig.

World-Wide Ancient Greek Reading Notes - Cecelia Luschnig has posted many of her reading notes online. These include notes for Scorates' Apology, Crito, Eripides' Medea, Herodotus, and Thucydides.

Akropolis World News - A summary of world news in ancient Greek. Unfortunately, this site is no longer producing new material, but there are extensive archives. Perhaps someone out there would like to continue this worthwhile project.

PhiloLogic - The University of Chicago has developed a tool to search Greek text, references and monographs in the Perseus collection. Click on "Search Greek texts" to use the tool. There is a a "user manual" link toward the top of the main page and an "info & help" tab at the bottom of the search screen with instructions.

Bibliotheca Graeca (alphabetical) - Links arranged in alphabetical order to numerous Ancient Greek texts.

Bibliotheca Graeca (chronological) - Links arranged in alphabetical order to numerous Ancient Greek texts.
