Description

This textbook offers students an introduction to classical Greek. Among the features of the book is a two-week introduction to spoken Greek, which immerses students in the sound and basic vocabulary of the language so that they are comfortable as they learn to read and write. For its reading passages the book uses engaging and even humorous stories drawn from folklore aroung the world and rendered freshly into classical Greek. Grammatical explanations are clear. One-step-at-a-time exercises are incorporated into the lessons. Entire chapters are devoted to vocabulary review to underline its importance and provide rest stops. There are special sections on aspects of Greek culture. Students test their reading skills along the way on passages in original Greek texts, which range from Heraclitus and the New Testament to Diogenes and Greek gravestones.
