sponse (TPR), gradual complexity of dialogs and stories, and gradual grammatical progression. Whether used by a self-taught individual or by an instructor with a group of students, this first level book submerges the student within the language. The audio files that are available to download from the Polis website will help the student internalize grammatical forms and vocabulary. As only Greek is heard by students, they are unable to rely on an intermediary language and are compelled to employ the new skills they have acquired through this text. Polis teaches Koine Greek, the dialect of Hellenistic literature from Alexander the Great till the end of Antiquity and in which most ancient Greek texts were written. The first edition of the Polis method has been published in French (Editions du Cerf, 2009), Italian (Edizioni San Paolo, 2010) and German (Helmut Buske, 2011). The English edition of Polis fully revises the first edition and expands its original twelve chapters to twenty. This first volume comprises the introduction, the foreword and the 20 chapters of the method.
