Some list-members who wish to go beyond Biblical Greek and explore  
the earlier classical form of the language may be interested to learn  
of a new site, "THE ETON GREEK SOFTWARE PROJECT" at  http:// 
www.etoncollege.com/Eton.asp?state=load&di=1458

Here's the blurb:

  "The Eton Classics Department has commissioned software to help  
with the learning of Greek vocabulary and grammar, making use of the  
new Oxford Greek Grammar by James Morwood. Oxford University Press  
has collaborated in this enterprise, and the Provost and Fellows of  
Eton College have made the programs available on the internet as a  
free service in accord with the College’s aims as a charitable  
organisation. The Reading Greek parts of the Project have been  
developed in association with the Department of Classical Studies at  
the Open University. The Chandris Group has given generous support to  
the project.

"The software, which is designed by Tony Smith, is in self-contained  
and manageable stages. Several stages have now been completed and  
consist of four Vocabulary Testers (for AQA GCSE, OCR GCSE, OCR AS- 
level, and a Reading Greek Vocabulary Tester), three Verb Testers  
(for GCSE, AS-level, and a Reading Greek Verb Tester), and four Noun  
Testers (for AQA GCSE, OCR GCSE, OCR AS-level, and a Reading Greek  
Noun Tester), all of which can be accessed below. The responses are  
multiple-choice or written. There is also a downloadable Word List  
suitable for use with the OCR AS-level. The next stage will be a  
syntax program consisting of ‘drag-and-drop’or ‘gap-filling’ exercises."
