What is the course about?
This course follows from and expands on Sanskrit Level 1 at Build.
What will we cover?
Thorough revision of what was learned in Level 1 – especially the Devanagari script, sandhi, the present, imperfect and future tense, nominal declensions, verb conjugations in the present system.
What will I achieve?
By the end of this course you should be able to...
Construct, read and translate fairly complex sentences in all the moods of the present system. You will learn to analyse and translate Sanskrit shlokas from the epics and the Bhagavad Gita.
What level is the course and do I need any particular skills?
This course presumes language skill imparted at Level 1 at Build, or equivalent competency.
How will I be taught, and will there be any work outside the class?
Classroom contact with interactions in both Sanskrit and English. To fully benefit from the course, you should be prepared to commit at least 3-4 hours to homework.
Are there any other costs? Is there anything I need to bring?
The Text book for Sanskrit Level 2 is Devavanipraveshika by Robert Goldman (ISBN 9788120833753).
When I've finished, what course can I do next?
You can enrol for module 2, in which you will expand your vocabulary dramatically, learn complex grammatical
forms, the past and future tense, the passive voice, and be able to read prose passages appropriate to this level.
General information and advice on courses at Build is available from the Student Centre and Library on Monday to Friday from 12:00 – 19:00.
