What is the course about?
You will continue to study the elementary structures of Ancient Greek. Based on the second edition of the Reading Greek (2007).
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?
Reading Greek by the Joint Association of Classical Teachers (Peter Jones and Keith Sidwell); 2nd edition, CUP, 2 vols; vol. 1: Reading Greek, Text and Vocabulary; vol. 2: Reading Greek, Grammar and Exercises. Some copies are available in the Library for use during this course. Further materials to be provided by the teacher in class.
