Greek to GCSE has none of these problems!
It is such a clear helpful book. It introduces new concepts and points of grammer clearly and helpfully. Then gives short exercises to practice on. Unlike Reading Greek you start off translating short simple sentences and build up to more complex sentences and then translating whole passages inspired by myths and tales of the Greek world such as Aesop's fables and Odysseus adventures with the Cyclops.
If you are looking for a book for independently studying Ancient Greek this is an excellent choice. There has never been a point at which I have needed a teacher's clarification on a concept outlined in the book. It also has a clear contents page so if you are confused about something and have to go back and review it, its very simple to find.
Another thing which is good about this book is that it is all-in-one, no need for separate grammar, text and study guide, it is all together in one handy place!
At the back it even has a separate grammer section as well as English-to-Greek and Greek-to-English of all the vocabulary introduced in the book, along with chapter numbers, it even lists the aorist twice, with the present form of the verb and on its own which is SO helpful.
If you had a limited amount of time, this book gives you confidence and clarity to move onto reading and translating pieces of original Greek. As a student of Classics and with no previous knowledge of other languages, it has been immensely helpful. I thoroughly recommend this book!
He even offers to help if you have any problems with any part of the course! Above all, he wants you to enjoy his course and give him feedback. He is clearly a kind man. Highly recommended.
Part 1 of JT's course has 163 pages. Part 2 has 356 of which 239 are taken up by new material. Can you get through this without a tutor ?Read more ›
