Product Description

Combining the best features of traditional and modern methods, Athenaze: An Introduction to Ancient Greek, Second Edition, provides a unique course of instruction that allows students to read connected Greek narrative right from the beginning and guides them to the point where they can begin reading complete classical texts.

Carefully designed to hold students' interest, the course begins in Book I with a fictional narrative about an Attic farmer's family placed in a precise historical context. This narrative, interwoven with tales from mythology and the Persian Wars, gradually gives way in Book II to adapted passages from Thucydides, Plato, and Herodotus and ultimately to excerpts from the original Greek of Bacchylides, Thucydides, and Aristophanes' Acharnians. Essays on relevant aspects of ancient Greek culture and history are also provided.

Second Edition Features
  • Short Passages from Classical and New Testament Greek
  • The opening lines of the Illiad and the Odyssey toward the end of Book II
  • New exercises
  • Updated Teacher's Handbooks
Please note: The back cover of this book incorrectly states that an Audio CD is included with the product. A CD is not included.
