The Routledge Modern Greek Reader
The Routledge Modern Greek Reader has been specially designed for post-beginners to advanced learners of Greek.
Written by an experienced instructor, this innovative reader offers both students and teachers of Modern Greek the pedagogical tools to utilise richly textured folktale material in a language class. Students can develop their linguistic skills while simultaneously engaging with the broader social and cultural context of the language.
Twenty five readings organised according to level of difficulty, beginning with easy short stories and progressing onto more advanced level texts
Vocabulary lists with English translations and vocabulary in context supporting each reading
Comprehension questions in each chapter to help foster stronger reading and writing skills
Language exercises and subject specific tasks to stimulate classroom discussion and help students develop strong essay writing skills in Greek
Three folktales presented in different dialects at the end of the book to help students understand variety within the Greek language itself
A complete Greek-English glossary and a list of all idiomatic expressions and colloquial phrases found in the folktales.
Suitable for both class use and independent study, The Routledge Modern Greek Reader is an essential tool for increasing language proficiency skills and enriching students’ cultural knowledge.
