I too learned beginning Greek with Wenham and still refer to it often.  It
is excellent at getting one started at translating early.  For those of us
that do not speak real English, rather American English, Wenham does take
some getting used to as some of his wording is not commonly used here in
the states.  This minor adjustment however seems insignificant compared to
the benefits of this beginning grammar.
