  • A sequel which spreads out to wider horizons [and] does indeed set a good standard for an academic intermediate level. Another outstanding feature is the great flexibility which the format allows to users. The organization of the material makes it easy for each individual student to concentrate on that aspect of language acquisition most needed . . . The authors are intelligent and experienced professionals, [and] their Demotic Greek II deserves every praise.
