This weekend course is part of a series designed for those who want to learn Classical Greek. Over a series of weekends, Beginner students are introduced to the basic elements of grammar through reading passages adapted from ancient Greek authors. At Intermediate level, students move onto collections of passages selected from major Greek writers, and finally, in the Advanced groups, students read what they choose from the whole of Greek literature. Continuing Beginners’ Greek (Level 1) will continue on from the absolute beginners’ course in September 2016, working through JACT Reading Greek (CUP, 2nd edition, 2007, two vols: Text and Vocabulary, and Grammar and Exercises), starting at Chapter 2. 

Students must provide their own copies of the text.
