Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A new edition of the bestselling Classical Greek textbook, that combines a traditionally rigorous introduction of ancient Greek with an encouraging, pleasant, and accessible presentation for today’s modern students. From Alpha to Omega inspires students of Ancient Greek by structuring lessons around manageable selections of actual Ancient Greek writings, beginning with Aesop’s most amusing and curious fables. By the second half of the book, students are able to take on instructive passages from The New Testament, Demosthenes, Xenophon, Thucydides, Lysias, Arrian, Aristotle, and Plato.Features:

  • Readings from Ancient Greek authors demonstrate new vocabulary and syntax learned in the lesson, allowing students to develop the chapter’s lesson through “real” Ancient Greek passages.
  • Succinct, instructive vocabulary lists for each lesson gives students a manageable list to learn and apply to the lesson’s readings.
  • Efficient translation exercises so that students can effectively practice the chapter lessons through a reasonable amount of exercises and progress to the next lesson.
  • Glossary containing all vocabulary words from lessons and readings, both Greek-to-English, and English-to-Greek, including page they appear in the book, for easy student reference.
  • Appendix of paradigms, including the dual-forms for student reference.
New to the Fourth Edition:
  • Self-tutorial exercises with an answer key that provide extra practice for students or individual learners.
  • Streamlined and modernized layout, appealing to today’s modern learners.
  • Integrated online resources, including audio recordings of the vocabulary and readings, flashcards of the chapter vocabulary, and more!
