This course is intended for students who have never studied ancient Greek, or those wishing to start again from scratch. Students will learn to read the Greek alphabet, understand simple texts, and express themselves clearly by using basic vocabulary. Teaching will be conducted initially in English, but ancient Greek will gradually become the main language of the classroom. Using the Athenaze textbook, and other materials from time to time, you will learn the present indicative, imperative and infinitive, the active and middle voices, the first three noun declensions, adjectives of three and two terminations, -α- and -ε- contract verbs, and the main prepositions (ἐν, εἰς, πρός, ἀπό περί, ὑπό, ἀνά, ἐπί, κατά, παρά). Lessons will involve reading, speaking, and grammar exercises, and homework will be encouraged.
