Classical and New Testament Greek

Learn Classical & New Testament Greek - Online Courses

Best known as the language of scholars, Ancient Greek was spoken by philosophers and mathematicians such as Plato, Aristotle, Pythagoras and Archimedes. It is the foundation of many English words such as 'academy', which can be traced back to the ancient Greek word 'Akademia', referring to Plato's school of philosophy located near Athens.
