* Website
Please review more extensive materials at the teacher's Greek I website.
* Description
This course, together with Greek II, is a fairly complete exposure to Attic (classical) Greek using the thorough, if weighty, book by Hansen and Quinn. By the end of the two-year sequence, students are ready to tackle Attic authors, and in the past have tested into upper-division college-level courses in Greek. By the end of the first year, most students can make reasonably good progress through the Greek New Testament with little more assistance than a lexicon.
* Meetings
This course meets 2 times per week for discussion and review of assigned homework.
* Homework
Completing the assigned exercises and readings requires considerable daily application and some very regular commitment to memorization. It is probably harder for most students than an elementary Latin sequence.
* Prerequisites
None
* Recommended background
In general we do not recommend beginning Latin and Greek at the same time, but it has been done. If you're hoping to do that, please contact the instructor.
* Instructor's Notes
The class time may be adjusted in order to best accommodate all enrolled students. Quizzes and web resources are located on the course Moodle website. Quizzes and other homework should be completed by the dates indicated on the schedule of assignments. Classes are conducted in typed chats hosted at Scholars Online. Our chat supports conversion from transliteration to the Greek alphabet.
