Elementary Ancient Greek I begins an intensive introduction to ancient Greek (also known as Classical Greek). Being an introductory course, no knowledge of Greek or the ancient Greeks is assumed. The textbook we will use provides comprehensive treatment of the ancient Greek noun and verb and thorough lessons in the rules of grammar and syntax. Successful completion of 5 Ancient Greek Modules will prepare students for advanced reading courses in Greek and/or independent reading of texts by authors like Plato, Thucydides, and Euripides. This course is excellent preparation for anyone thinking of pursuing Classics, Ancient History, Philosophy, or Linguistics.
