Absolute Beginners’ Greek (Level 1): This group is for complete beginners, and assumes no prior knowledge of Greek. It is also the appropriate group for those who have attended a Taster Day-School. You are asked to familiarise yourself with the Greek alphabet beforehand, and in the course of the weekend you will start reading passages of Greek based on original authors, through which you will be introduced not only to the workings of the language, but also to the world of Athens in the fifth century BC. Set text: JACT Reading Greek CUP, 2nd edition, 2007, comprising two volumes: Text and Vocabulary, and Grammar and Exercises.
