HandHeldClassics is a website dedicated to supplying tools and content that enable the reading and study of classical languages on a handheld computer. It is likely to be of use to ancient language learners at all levels. Based on theories of language learning that include reading text in its original language and in translation concurrently, the site''s author, John Jackson, draws upon the ideas of Heinrich Schliemann, John Milton and Sydney Smith to suggest models that can be interpreted via modern technology. The site includes access to free downloads to enable the installation of the language programmes and also a simulation of a Palm Pilot with the Bible+ interlinear text reader programme. The site is well-presented and while it requires an understanding of the use of hand held computers, its approach will be useful to beginners as well as more experienced users
