PLEASE note that: (1) audio lectures (9-18 min. in length) will take several minutes to download on slow modem connections; and (2) they require a reasonably recent version of Windows Media Player (or another player capable of playing .wma files).Greek text employs the Unicode format, that displays best on computers using Windows 2000 or later.
