Recommended background

Strong language skills are helpful, but the course will certainly provide the necessary grounding.

Teacher's notes:

Beginning both Greek and Latin simultaneously is not generally recommended; if you want to do so, please contact the instructors for some further discussion.
A student should be certain to be able to attend regularly: the occasional missed class is probably inevitable, but one unable to come at least 90% of the time is probably not going to get the solid grounding the course is designed to deliver.
