Learn to Read Greek is a text and workbook for students beginning the study of Ancient Greek. It is the companion volume to the authors' Learn to Read Latin, published in 2004. Like its Latin predecessor, it has a grammar-based approach and is intended for students who have a serious interest in learning the language. The text and workbook include carefully chosen vocabularies and extensive vocabulary notes; clear and complete presentations of all necessary morphology and syntax; large numbers of drills and drill sentences; and abundant unabridged passages from a variety of Greek authors and texts.

Andrew Keller and Stephanie Russell both teach Classics at the Collegiate School in New York City. They are the authors of Learn to Read Latin, published by Yale University Press in 2004.

Learn to Read Greek by Keller and Russell clearly will be the best book available for students in the US or UK who want to learn Greek quickly, precisely, and in the most rewarding way. It is, in fact, a model textbook.”—Richard Martin, Stanford University

"In our assessment LTRG is the best textbook for helping students to acquire high-level knowledge of Greek language, grammar, and syntax. The textbook is well-paced and proceeds logically; its abundant vocabulary notes and grammatical explanations mean that teachers and students rarely have to consult outside reference books. The workbook provides copious, well-conceived exercises, an invaluable resource for students and teachers alike, and we found its practice sentences to reflect the tendencies of Greek word choice, word order, and syntax far better than any other textbook we had used."—Ryan B. Samuels and Robert L. Cioffi, Bryn Mawr Classical Review
