Re: Randall Buth's Fluency Workshop

. . . I was told that Christophe Rico recently had a session in Florida. So I wonder if anyone present could chime in on how that went?

Re: Greek Composition

I came across this thread rather late, but I thought I'd mention that I've been attempting to answer Louis's questions in Greek at http://percipiolinguamgraecam.wordpress.com/. Mark L. has offered some thoughts there as well -- if anyone would like to join in, please feel free.

I knew from reading B-Greek that I wanted to start with Attic, not Koine, so I was glad that Chase and Phillips was an Attic primer. O...

I decided I wanted to learn Greek when I read C. S. Lewis describe the glories of Homer in Surprised By Joy. That was in high school; two years later, a freshman in college, I enrolled in Greek 111.
