Ancient Greek A - AHIS108

The main aim of this unit is to teach students to read documents in Ancient Greek. This is an introductory unit and no previous knowledge of Ancient Greek is expected, nor is familiarity with the rudiments of English grammar essential (although this is helpful). By the end of the unit students should be able to read simple passages in Greek; should have a sound knowledge of the vocabulary of the texts studied; and should have acquired sufficient mastery of their grammar and vocabulary to understand the texts at the level of word and phrase. A second semester of study is required before students are able to read original Greek documents with any degree of fluency.
