What is the course about?

What will we cover?

We shall be using the two volumes of Reading Greek (2nd ed.), Grammar and Exercises, and Text and Vocabulary. Starting at about Section 4D (please check with the tutor through the Classical Languages and Civilisations Department for the exact point to start at).

What will I achieve?
By the end of this course you should be able to...

- read Greek fluently;
- demonstrate further knowledge of declensions of nouns;
- demonstrate further knowledge of conjugations of verbs.

What level is the course and do I need any particular skills?

You should have studied Greek for at least 1 year. As this course is taught in English, you should be able to follow verbal and written instructions in English and also take part in class and group discussions on readings. Please look at the rest of the course outline carefully to decide if you may benefit from support with your English skills to help you take part fully in this class.

How will I be taught, and will there be any work outside the class?

Whole class work and group work. Translation, grammar instruction, grammatical exercises. About 2-3 hours homework per week.

Are there any other costs? Is there anything I need to bring?

Classical Greek is such a lovely course which I would recommend to anyone with a love for languages, ancient or modern or even a small interest in classical civilisation. Knowing no classical Greek at all when I started, I am really pleased with how much I have learned in such a relatively short time in a friendly and encouraging environment. Amazing to discover how much Greek has influenced the English language!
