Email or call for price.
The goal of this book is to enable the student to read ancient Greek without the use of a dictionary or translation, and to read as fluently as one could read in French or Spanish. For educational purposes, ancient Greek is treated as a living language in this text. Polis applies teaching methods commonly used for modern language acquisition to ancient Greek: total oral immersion, total physical response (TPR), gradual complexity of dialogs and stories, and gradual grammatical progression.
Whether used by a self-taught individual or by an instructor with a group of students, this second level book submerges the student within the language. Polis teaches Koine Greek, the dialect of Hellenistic literature from Alexander the Great till the end of Antiquity and in which most ancient Greek texts were written. This second volume (draft) continues and expands the grammatical topics covered in Polis: Speaking Ancient Greek as a Living Language, Level Two.
