Note: These exercises are written to accord with the Second Edition of Athenaze by Balme and Lawall (2003).  Also, two printed Workbooks (I & II) have been written by me and others to supplement Athenaze (available from Oxford University Press, 2004).  The Workbook exercises and these somewhat simpler online exercises provide practice for students of ancient Greek using Athenaze and possibly some other Greek language textbooks.

These exercises, based on an older set, have been revised using the Java Hot Potatoes 6 program and the New Athena Unicode font, available via free download for either Mac or Windows computers from: They appear to work with other unicode fonts as well, but most reliably with New Athena.

NB.  For vocabulary drill and parsing exercises, I also recommend the Grammaprogram available from Centaur Systems Ltd. .

ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS:  Thanks are due to Half-Baked Software for use of their Hot Potatoesmodules with which these exercises were created.  Also, in reference to the original project, to Robert Hart of the University of Illinois, a good friend, for his generous assistance and encouragement in that project, especially in providing instruction in basic javascript and in helping me confront the knotty problems of presenting Greek language exercises on the Web.  Also to Robert Cape, my colleague in Classics at Austin College, for his many good suggestions about web design.  Finally, the original project and, by extension, this one were made possible by a generous grant from the Culpeper Foundation to the Department of Classical and Modern Languages of Austin College; also, completion of the exercises for Book II was done mostly in connection with a TIF Board of Texas grant also made to the Department.
