Intermediate Greek


There are no classes currently available for registration.


Our Intermediate Greek short course is a study of the Greek language for students who have completed the Introduction to Ancient Greek course or an equivalent (Greek to GCSE standard). The course aims to develop your knowledge of Greek grammar and widen your vocabulary, enabling you to master regular syntactical constructions and read standard Attic Greek texts. The course covers sections 17-29 of Balme and Lawall’s Athenaze II.

By the end of the course you should be able to understand all syntactical constructions covered in these units and demonstrate your ability by translating from Greek into English and from English into Greek. In addition to the coursebook work, you will study a short unadapted text and practise reading and translating Attic Greek texts at sight.

This can be taken as a standalone short course or as a part of:
