Ποικιλία


The first volume of Variatio’s Greek equivalent, Ποικιλία, will be published later this year.

It includes the following topics: the alphabet; all active tenses of λύω; present imperatives and infinitives; εἰμί sum, φημί andirregular forms of βαίνω and γιγνώσκω; impersonal verbs; all declensions of nouns, including irregulars; prepositions; questions; connection; adjectives like σοφός and φίλιος; irregular adjectives; comparison of adjectives, regular and irregular; the genitive of comparison; adverbs and their comparison; personal, possessive, intensive and reflexive pronouns; numerals; time expressions; and principal parts.

The course will comprise a total of three volumes. The first book will cover the whole of the CE syllabus, while the second and third will cover GCSE and AS respectively, taking the beginner from elementary transliteration through to verbs in -μι and complex syntactical constructions.

As with Variatio, the course is highly gradated, with a broad range of grammatical exercises, passages for translation (both Greek to English and vice versa), sentences, derivations and so forth. The first volume alone contains two hundred exercises, more than any other course on the market.
