Herodutus for the Ancient Greek Instruction.
This CD ROM language course was developed for teaching Ancient Greek to Greek High School Students. Although the course is designed for Modern Greek speakers, it can be a valuable aid to any student of Ancient Greek.
The presentation is based upon extracts form the Histories of the ancient Greek historian, Herodotus. The ancient Greek texts are fully annotated and are accompanied by an original translation in Modern Greek. The software allow for the comparison of the two texts through the use of the technique of parallel speaking texts developed by ILSP.
The CD-ROM covers the following units: Kroessus and Solon, Egypt and the Nile, the oracle at Delphi and Dodoni, the battle of Thermopyles, and the naval battle of Salamis. A considerable number of photographs and videos (museum exhibits, virtual museums, films, animations of battles) support these units.
Language remarks follow every text together with exercises for consolidation of the language material. The software “Herodotus +” can be used for self-paced learning at home as well as for guided teaching in lower secondary schools.
