[Enrolled students will be notified if teacher schedules change between course posting at the time enrollment opens and the scheduled start of classes. Please see Tuition and Fees for refund policy.]
Section dates, meeting times, and tuition are still being determined.
* Website
There is currently no teacher website for this course.
* Description
This course continues with Units 11-20 of the Hansen and Quinn introductory textbook. By the time they have finished, students should have mastery of a core vocabulary, all significant inflectional forms, and the main syntax of Greek, and be prepared to tackle Attic Greek readings. In the past, students completing only Greek II have tested into upper-division Greek courses in college. The New Testament should also be fairly easy to read at this point.
* Meetings
This course meets 2 times per week for discussion and review of assigned homework.
* Homework
There is a good deal of memorization in the course, though arguably less than in Greek I, where the main verb forms and participles are covered. Still, a student should expect to spend at least an hour a day outside class on preparation and study.
* Prerequisites
Greek I through this program, or some other program offering Hansen and Quinn units 1-10. Due to the order of presentation of materials, no other preparation will really be adequate.
* Recommended background
Greek I or another program covering Hansen and Quinn Units 1-10 is a prerequisite for this course.
* Instructor's Notes
This course will be offered if it receives sufficient enrollment. In the case of insufficient enrollment, this course will be offered as a tutorial conducted over e-mail, with no regularly scheduled live chats.
