Description - Greek to GCSE by John Taylor

The two-volume course "Greek to GCSE" was written in response to a JACT survey of over 100 schools and first published in 2003. The course offer a fast-track route to GCSE for those with limited time. It is based on experience of what pupils find difficult. It concentrates on the essentials, and on the understanding of principles in both accidence and syntax. It aims to be user-friendly, but also to give pupils a firm foundation for further study. Part 1 covered the basics: the main declensions, a range of active tenses, and a vocabulary of 275 Greek words to be learned. Part 2, here issued in a new edition, introduces a wider range of grammatical forms and constructions. This revised edition has been adapted to complete the coverage of requirements for the current GCSE, expanding vocabulary to 480 words. Reading material moves from Socrates and the Sophists to the world of myth, and finally to extended passages of lightly adapted Herodotus. Practice passages and revision sentences for GCSE complete Part 2, which has a reference section covering the whole course.
