Learning Ancient Greek? If you're using the Cambridge University Press textbook "Reading Greek," by the Joint Association of Classical Teachers (JACT), JACT Vocab is here to help. It's a set of nearly 1300 virtual flashcards, representing the entire vocabulary to be memorized as you go through the textbook.

The flashcards are presented in the same order as the vocabulary in the textbook. Or, look up any word in alphabetical order.

The English translation of each Greek word can be hidden or shown at will, great for self-testing. Pick a section or sections to drill in random order.

This vocabulary is keyed to the second edition of "Reading Greek."

Excellent way to learn and drill ancient Greek vocab. You don't have to buy the books to learn from this, but I do recommend the books also.

Excellent Learning Tool. 2 Suggestions

You can't learn a language without learning vocabulary and that requires either wearing out the pages of a dictionary or memorization. And memorization requires drilling oneself on words. This app is perfect for that. The fact that it is keyed to the different sections and lessons is a bonus. And it's clear, clean, and easy to use.

If the developer wanted to add a couple of improvements, I would suggest these two:

1. Add a separate field that could be used to enter the declension of nouns, as the JACT textbooks do. E.g., 1a, 2b, 3f, etc. This would help the student learn the class to which the noun belongs as well as its meaning. Why a separate field? See suggestion 2.

2. And to make this more powerful, allow some sorting capabilities on parts of speech and, following up on the suggestion above, sorting on noun classes. Sometimes one might want to drill just on adverbs. Or on nouns of the declension 3c. Or prepositions, etc.

For anyone using the JACT Greek program, this is an invaluable tool, whether for iPad, iPhone, or both.

Kudos to Matt Neuburg for a great app that eases learning a classical language, helping to bridge the ancient world with the modern.

Four stars only because of the suggested missing elements.

Great app

This is a great app, which helped me loads with my ancient geek GCSE revision. I would recommend that each word could include stuff like cases and irregular tenses, but overall it is very helpful.
