Are there any online programs for learning linear B?

I am trying to prepare for my trip to Greece this summer - excavation of the Temple of Aphrodite.

Linear B is basically a set of signs and there are many online materials about it:

 
 
I'm not sure what do you mean by learning, I guess you'll just have to memorize them. And of course some decent knowledge of Ancient Greek is recommended so that you can join those syllabes in actual words and get some meanings out of the text.

Thank you Chilbudios this is very helpful and better than using Chadwick. I have been curious - are you Greek or part Greek like me?

Not really Smile
 
Anyway, meanwhile I got several more links:
 
a glossary of words written in Linear B: http://www.geocities.com/kurogr/linearb.pdf 
about the decipherment of Linear B: http://www.u.arizona.edu/~vancet/Lecture22.pdf

I'm preparing an online dictionary of Linear B + other languages, that will help you to translate tablets by point and click on the characters you see.

It's gonna be launched here: http://www.palaeolexicon.com/

Thanks flipper - I could use this in preparation for Cyprus but if I do not go it is still fun to explore Bronze Age Greece. The person who invited me there was my old history Instructor and she had lived on Cyprus for 20 years as an archaeologist. She has such a good reputation with the Greek government that she is one of the few non-Greeks who can get an archaeological permit. She has dual citizenship with Greece because she was married to a Greek. Once this is launched I will email it to her.

Thank you eaglecap!
Btw, I intend to include Linear C as well. Besides, Arcadocypriot is one of the oldest attested dialects of Greek and it seems that many Cypriots had only linear writing literacy during the classical years.
