C.A.E. Luschnig's An Introduction to Ancient Greek: A Literary Approach prepares students to read Greek in less than a year by presenting basic traditional grammar without frills and by introducing real Greek written by ancient Greeks, from the first day of study. The second edition retains all the features of the first but is more streamlined, easier on the eyes, more gender-inclusive, and altogether more 21st century. It is supported by a Web site for teachers and learners at http://worldwidegreek.com/.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"...her approach brings students to competency quickly and efficiently. The new version improves what was already a good text, keeping the many exercise sentences, providing a realistic selection of 'real Greek' readings with translation aids conveniently below. The proof is in the pudding: after doing beginning Greek with Luschnig's text, my Greek students have been able to move easily to the second year reading classes in either Euripides or Plato." -- Karelisa Hartigan, Department of Classics, University of Florida.
"...offers a thorough and clear account of grammar and syntax, copious exercises for practice, and a wonderful array of brief passages from ancient authors for translation and discussion. My students and I have used the text happily for years, and this new edition is even better than its predecessor." -- Deborah H Roberts, William R Kennan Jr Professor of Comparative Literature and Classics, Haverford College.
"...the most successful of the more than half-dozen beginning Greek grammars I have used in the classroom, especially in this revised edition. Students meet 'real Greek' early and often, and the exercises are ample and varied. What I appreciate particularly is that this grammar has personality, even a sense of humor, so that my students feel they are learning ancient Greek from Cecelia Luschnig rather than an anonymous textbook..." -- Sherry Gray Martin, Faculty, St John's College, Santa Fe.

I have used C.A.E. Luschnig's text for my beginning Greek sequence for over twenty years. I find that her approach brings students to competency quickly and efficiently. The new version improves what was already a good text, keeping the many exercise sentences, providing a realistic selection of 'real Greek' readings with translation aids conveniently below. The proof is in the pudding: after doing beginning Greek with Luschnig's text, my Greek students have been able to move easily to the second year reading classes in either Euripides or Plato. --Karelisa Hartigan, Professor of Classics, University of Florida
. . . [A] remarkable volume, preserving the verve, knowledge, and perspective of a master teacher. --Wilfred E. Major, Bryn Mawr Classical Review
