This is a useful collection of 120 passages from Greek authors, ideal for students at GCSE and A level. The first half contains twenty adapted passages building up to GCSE level, thirty lightly adapted ones for AS, and ten easy unadapted passages to introduce the translation of verse. The second half contains thirty prose and thirty verse passages of A level standard, unadapted except by minor omissions. Vocabulary beyond the core assumed at each level is glossed.
Greek Beyond GCSE covers all the linguistic requirements for the OCR AS and A Level in Classical Greek. It aims to bring students to a point where they can tackle original Greek texts with confidence. Although designed as a continuation of Greek to GCSE, it is self-contained and can be used independently. This second edition is brought in line with the OCR specifications for first teaching in September 2016. The first part of the book introduces new constructions accompanied by exercises and lightly adapted reading passages. This is followed by extended unadapted extracts from a range of prose and verse authors. Finally, there is a reference section including a summary of all constructions, a comprehensive grammar, and a vocabulary of 830 Greek words (with a list of 250 common poetic words for verse passages, new to this edition).
