    About the Authors
    • First published in 1978, Reading Greek has become a best-selling one-year introductory course in ancient Greek for students and adults. It combines the best of modern and traditional language-learning techniques and is used widely in schools, summer schools and universities across the world. It has also been translated into several foreign languages. This volume provides full grammatical support together with numerous exercises at different levels. For the second edition the presentations of grammar have been substantially revised to meet the needs of today's students and the volume has been completely redesigned, with the use of colour. Greek-English and English-Greek vocabularies are provided, as well as a substantial reference grammar and language surveys. The accompanying Text and Vocabulary volume contains a narrative adapted entirely from ancient authors in order to encourage students rapidly to develop their reading skills, simultaneously receiving a good introduction to Greek culture.

      • Helps students learn ancient Greek at the same time as beginning to explore Greek literature, with the texts used in the first edition retained throughout
      • Offers heavily revised grammatical sections and exercises designed to meet the needs of today's students and which have been successfully trialled
      • Offers a fresh, modern, spacious design, with extensive use of illustration in the Text volume and colour in the Grammar volume
