M.L. West, Indo-European Poetry and Myth (Oxford: Oxford University Press, 2007), p. 8:
The first speakers of Greek—or rather of the language that was to develop into Greek; I will call them mello-Greeks20—arrived in Greece, on the most widely accepted view, at the beginning of Early Helladic III, that is, around 2300.21

20 From Greek μέλλω, ‘I am going to be’.
21 Cf. West (1997), 1 with n. 2.
One could adapt the term to refer to beginning Greek students.
