Group Listings:
 
New Beginners' group
Coordinator: Jennifer Margrison <jmargrison at gmail dot com>
    If we have some people interested, I will start a new beginners' group at the end of November or beginning of December.
Textbook : Greek to GCSE: Part 1 by John Taylor 2016 edition.
This group includes typing in Ancient Greek, which includes extra bits that aren't used in Modern Greek.  like this: τῳ ἐργῳ.  If your computer is displaying this properly you should see a little i underneath the letter like w (omega)and a comma like thing above the e type letter (eta).
If you are using an Android or Apple tablet  all you should need is a keyboard app. For Windows or Mac or Linux there is some info at http://quasillum.com/software/unicorn.php
If you need an ancient Greek font there are some nice free ones at http://www.hancock.dircon.co.uk
