Continue to increase your fluency in reading Greek. This is a follow on course from Classical Greek 1: module 1.


What is the course about?

The course will help students wanting to increase their fluency in reading Classical Greek. It will focus on aspects of vocabulary and grammar with the scope of accessing original text from Attic Greek. Readings will move progressively towards unadapted texts, taken especially from Aristophane’s work.

What will we cover?

In this second module, students will get acquainted with a range of vocabulary and grammatical structures, including:
the middle-passive voice of thematic verbs, including contract verbs,
first declension of masculine and feminine nouns,
the genitive case,
word structure and the order of the article,
prepositions of accusative and dative.
Adjectives from a diverse typology.
Third declension nouns and adjectives, as well as verb participles.
Indefinite pronouns such as “someone”, “no one” and “who” in Greek.

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

Tackle texts in Attic Greek where the linguistic elements just described featured.

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

This course is aimed at students who would have completed Greek 1, module 1, or who for students with previous knowledge of Greek who intend to refresh their Greek from a beginners’ level.

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

Lessons will focus on an exposition of the grammar and reading of passages in Greek. Ancient Greek may be used actively as part of the lesson, but explanations will always be provided in English when clarity is required. Students are expected to prepare readings of the text as well as doing some activities related with the grammar content.

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

Students need to be in possession of “Reading Greek” from the JACT.

When I've finished, what course can I do next?

Classical Greek 1: module 3.
