Description

Reading Greek is the ancient Greek language course produced by the Joint Association of Classical Teachers and published by Cambridge University Press. This Independent Study Guide is intended to help students who are learning Greek on their own or with only limited access to a teacher. It contains notes on the Greek texts that appear in the Reading Greek Text volume, translations of all the texts, answers to the exercises in the Grammar, Vocabulary, and Exercises volume and cross-references to the relevant fifth-century BC background in The World of Athens. There are instructions on how to use the course and the Study Guide. Apart from those studying entirely on their own, students in schools, in universities and summer schools who have to learn Greek rapidly and intensively will also welcome the appearance of this Guide.
