Hexameter.co, a website created to help students, teachers, and lovers of ancient poetry practice their understanding of poetic meter. I created this website about a year ago, and it has seen hundreds of thousands of user attempts. Does it work? I think it does, and I think my data backs me up. Visit hexameter.co and see for yourself!
Hexameter is the metrical pattern used by many ancient poets. It consists of combinations of long and short syllables, and my website at hexameter.co does a great job of helping practice your ability to identify these long and short syllables. And in the summer of 2018, I did a massive overhaul of the site, adding many new verses and awesome features to make hexameter.co a worthwhile tool!

I've added a new activity over at hexameter.co called Rapid Scan. My goal is to help create a natural ability at scanning lines quickly and naturally. You have five minutes to get as many lines correct as you can (don't worry, you get easy lines to start), and your attempt is over when you get three lines incorrect. Subscribers get unlimited access to Rapid Scan, and other users are limited to just three attempts each day. Climb the charts! Challenge yourself!
