A little too slow for me... Oct 30, 2007
I'm using this text book to teach 8th Graders, and I find it a little too easy for my class. We are able to complete an entire week's worth of homework and the lesson in Monday's class, and there's really nothing to do the rest of the week! Additionally, during the first year, the students only learn the present active indicative tense for verbs and only 2 noun cases (nominative and genitive). There is no actual textbook for the students, so the teacher has to make handouts each week for vocabulary and translations. The only resource for the student is the workbook, which is mostly copying and repetitive work. Repetition is good, but this is a bit much. If you're doing a self-study, it's probably good, and you'll go through the book much faster than 1 lesson per week. If you're using this as a textbook, it's probably more geared towards 6th grade than 8th grade.
Very good, if used with care Apr 3, 2007
This book is very approachable. I like the "little bite" approach to teaching, as opposed to the "main course" approach. There is a lot of repetition in the workbook, which is a good aid to learning.
I am middle-aged and learning on my own (having had one semester of Greek in college many years ago), but I believe this book would also be very good for home schooling.
Watch out, though. Be very alert for errors, which are numerous, particularly in the answer key. These could have been avoided by a careful proofreading, and I hope they will be corrected if there is a new edition.
If you are teaching, please work through the workbook yourself so that you can tell if an answer is correct. Just relying on the answer key will not be sufficient.
In spite of the errors, I think this is a very good book for self-teaching and home schooling, if used with care. I have finished Book One and have ordered Book Two.

Great for Homeschool and Christian Schools Jan 23, 2007
I found this to be the best curriculum for my Intro to NT Greek class for Middle School grades 6-8. The format makes this extremely accessible to my students.
