This text is designed for courses in the introduction to classical Greek using the "direct method" of learning. This method is a near immersion method in which much of the course and the book as possible is done in Greek, relying less on translation and more on acquiring skills in reading, speaking and thinking in the target language. Rouse's classic book has been thoroughly revised for the modern students by Anne Mahoney. The Greek reader, Rouse's Greek Boy, is a companion that carefully follows the progression of this text.
