The programmed text is divided into seven units: (1) An Introduction to Greek, (2) The Geography of the Greek World, (3) Everyday Life among the Greeks, (4) The Alphabet, (5) Ancient Crete, (6) Troy, and (7) Greek Gods and Heroes. Each unit consists of a set of frames containing questions. The answers, to be supplied first by the student, are also provided.
