The following drill is far more useful:
PRONUNCIATION DRILLS ON THE WEB: GO
This program accompanies the following textbook: Introduction to Attic Greek, by Donald J. Mastronarde, but may be useful to students learning from another textbook. It is accessible from any Macintosh on campus. Go to the UH webpage, then to Academics, HFAC, Modern & Classical Languages, Foreign Language Lab, and follow instructions to access GREEK. You may also reach it by going to the Chooser, selecting Agnes Arnold Hall, then clicking on the FLL and on Poliglot. These drills will help students learn the forms, vocabulary and pronunciation of ancient Greek. Naturally, it follows the sequence of Mastronarde's book. I will indicate in class which units of this drill roughly correspond to the grammatical matter in our textbook.

(And, optionally, Apple's Speech Manager and voices). (MAC ONLY)

This stack includes all the learned vocabulary from the textbook, allows this vocabulary to be sorted and consulted in ways likely to be useful to students and teachers, and creates flashcards.

PLATO READER. An application (Mac only) which provides a hypertext grammatical commentary on the Plato selections from the JACT (Cambridge) second- or third-year Ancient Greek textbook, The Intellectual Revolution. The Plato text is in it, and so is a reference grammar, and when you click on a word in the Plato text, you are taken instantly to the relevant passage in the reference grammar. Personally, I think the grammar alone is the real point; it's written from a somewhat revolutionary point of view (active rather than passive, i.e. how to say things in Greek), and disagrees with Smyth on many points. If the link does not work, ask Prof. Pozzi to give you a copy (it is freeware).
