The verb-of-motion will work with all versions of Internet Explorer or Firefox. Google Chrome is another matter. To run these exercises on Chrome, you should type in the address bar: chrome://flags/#enable-npapi. In the window that opens, click the link that says Enable under the "Enable NPAPI flag". These exercises will not work beyond version 45 in Google Chrome.
The Java exercises are primitive by today's standards and require an old-fashioned Liquid Motion player which will automatically download onto your hard disk in about 15-20 seconds. Both your browser and, for sure, the Java application will note that the version of Java is outdated and ask you whether to proceed. Don't worry about any of the applications on this website and answer all questions "Yes". The player only downloads once and will then be used for all the exercises you choose to do in a particular on-line session.
To start an animation, click anywhere on the picture once it has loaded. The animation demonstrating the verb ΧΕΣΤΙ is exceptional in that you must reload it to restart it. (I don't know why—cybergremlins, I suppose.) When you are familiar with the perfective and imperfective forms of the verbs in the animation, test yourself with the forms exercises below the animation.
