This course offers progression from Ancient Greek: Lower Intermediate - Part 1.
Learning ancient Greek opens up a window into a captivating world, one that is both completely alien to ours and in some ways remarkably close. It allows us unmediated access to the religious, political, philosophical and scientific thought of a culture that has hugely influenced our own, as well as to some of the some of the most compelling literature ever composed. This course prepares you to read such texts in the original language, and to explore the grammar and deeper meanings of the language.
In the classes, we will translate texts from Greek into English, compose texts in Greek and anaylse grammar structures using the JACT Reading Greek textbook. We will explore aspects of literature, religion, philosophy, the visual arts and the society of ancient Greece, and discuss how cultural developments in the ancient world affect our modern lives.
