What is the course about?
This course continues from 'Classical Greek 5 Lower: module 3' aiming to improve your fluency in reading and translating Greek, and helping you to gain a greater knowledge of grammar and vocabulary.
What will we cover?
This experienced upper-intermediate class has finished the ‘Reading Greek’ course books, and will be revising more intricate aspects of grammar, and reading unadapted passages of Greek, using ‘Greek Beyond GCSE’. Reading will be combined with grammar instruction and grammatical exercises.
What will I achieve?
By the end of this course you should be able to...
- recognise and translate 3rd person imperatives and dual forms
- be familiar with the articular infinitive (the gerund) and the verbal adjective (the gerundive)
- recognise and use the indefinite construction.
What level is the course and do I need any particular skills?
You should have studied Greek for three years. As this course is taught in English, you should be fluent in spoken and written English and also be prepared to take part in class and group discussion on readings. Please look at the rest of the course outline carefully if you feel you need 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 and group work. Translation, grammar instruction, grammatical exercises. Homework: about 2-3 hours per week.
Are there any other costs? Is there anything I need to bring?
‘Greek Beyond GCSE’ by J Taylor pub BCP (either 1st or 2nd edition).
When I've finished, what course can I do next?
Classical Greek 5: module 2 in Term 2.
