What is the course about?

The course aims to enable students to read straightforward Greek prose by gaining a knowledge of basic grammatical structures. We shall be using Reading Greek, a textbook designed for adult learners based on original Greek sources, starting from Section 2.

This is a live online course. You will need:
- Internet connection. The classes work best with Chrome.
- A computer with microphone and camera is best (e.g. a PC/laptop/iMac/MacBook), or a tablet/iPad/smart phone/iPhone if you don't have a computer.
- Earphones/headphones/speakers.
We will contact you with joining instructions before your course starts.

What will we cover?

We shall continue to study the conjugation of verbs, the declension of nouns and adjectives, prepositions and adverbs. Students will read adapted passages included in the “Reading Greek: Text and Vocabulary” volume; reading will be combined with grammar instruction and grammatical exercises. We will start around section 2 of the textbook.

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

- read Greek with increased fluency
- demonstrate some knowledge of the present tense and of the imperative
- demonstrate knowledge of the declension of feminine nouns
- have some insight into the derivation of English words.
- have some insight into the Persian and Peloponnesian Wars.

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

You should have attended Classical Greek 1 module 1 or have an equivalent knowledge. As the course is taught in English, please read the 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?

The course consists of translation, grammar instructions and grammar exercises with a high level of student interaction (individual, pair and group work). Students are expected to do the homework regularly and participate in oral classroom activities. Homework will require approx. 1-2 hours per week.

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