Intermediate Greek 1 (GRKA2600)


This unit consolidates the knowledge of Greek acquired in GRKA1601, GRKA2621 or by advanced study of Greek at school. It involves both formal language study, including practice in unseen translation and prose composition, and the close reading of extended extracts from Greek prose and/or verse texts. Increasing attention will be paid to the literary qualities, style, generic and socio-historical background of the texts, as well as to their grammar and syntax.
