Language Resources: Textkit

If you don't already know it, Textkit is a site with great resources to help anyone learn Greek and Latin: Smyth's Greek Grammar, for example. Here's their beginners center to get you started. There are Greek and Latin Forums (Fora?) where you can post questions and join learning communities. There are also Greek Dictionaries, simpler Greek grammars (than Smyth) for beginning New Testament Greek and selections from (an older edition of) the Greek Septuagint. (Here's a 2007 translation of the Septuagint which isn't free: A New English Translation of the Septuagint).

I should give this a try...I need to do something before I lose my Greek completely :(

The NETS translation is, I find, particularly useful where students do NOT know Greek.

Anyway, NETS is available in a free electronic version (PDFs); you just cannot print the files:
