Group Description

This was a support group for those learning Ancient Greek
using the textbook "An Introduction to Greek" by Crosby and Schaeffer
via the Crosby group on the GreekStudy mailing list.
This is a private group to avoid spammers. Membership was primarily restricted to those taking part in the original study group.
We completed the book in May 2013.

You can still join the group and access the files section for answer collations.

I had chosen Crosby as a text because it had a large number of short lessons that were suitable for weekly on-line assignments. It did not contain enough explanations nor enough practice material so most found Crosby too difficult and could not finish.

I now prefer John Taylor's book "Greek to GCSE - Part 1" and "... - Part 2"
and "Greek Beyond GCSE" which have much better explanations and are much better for learners.

To fully participate in the GCSE book studygroups or
other Greek study groups go to


and join the GreekStudy list.

I have placed some extra supplementary material in the Files
area here. General questions about Greek should be posted
to the GreekStudy mailing list mentioned above, not here.

I have placed the full text of the collations of our answers
to Lessons 1-79 in the Files area here.
These also include my comments and corrections.
The English to Greek translations have been checked
against the original Teacher's Manual.

(The teachers Manual does not include answers to the Greek-English exercises)

New study groups for Greek beginners are started from
time to time on the GreekStudy list,
A new group for Greek to GCSE Part 1 started in Sept 2014.
There is a separate group for Part 2 that started in Oct 2014

In the Summer of 2011 during the Summer break we read some stories from the old Moss reader
(see Files section for those texts and collations of our translations)
