Summary:"This text is written for the person who seriously wishes to learn Greek and to read intelligibly a Greek New Testament. Whereas it is expected that the volume will be primarily used in classroom settings, the text was written with the intention that a person, using the Translation Key to evaluate his or her exercises, could readily progress to competent exegetical studies without professorial help."Experience has shown that the most significant stumbling block to learning Greek is an inadequate knowledge of English grammar. Hence, while the text assumes that a person does know English grammar. Hence, while the text assumes that a person does know English grammar, it also includes explanations and illustrations of each English grammatical counterpart as new Greek materials are introduced."The text proceeds from the basic structures of the verb and noun to the more complex constructions. Forms and vocabulary are introduced at a rate such that by the end of two semesters (30 weeks) or an intensive summer program (e.g., eight 40 hour weeks) the student will have covered all the grammar and vocabulary necessary to enter basic Greek exegesis courses." - from the preface
