The Warburg Institute offers a continuation of its online course in Classical Greek for complete beginners with a further eight sessions across the Spring Term 2022. 

A principal aim of the course is to equip students with an essential set of linguistic navigational tools, which can serve as a springboard for further study of both language and literature. An initial level of competence in the language will, it is hoped, also engender a corresponding degree of confidence when it comes to encounters with Greek in Renaissance texts. 

Greek was a highly prized, but also deeply contested language right through the early modern period, and a further dimension of the course will be a consideration of the implications of using Greek during the 14th to the 17th centuries. We will continue to use John Taylor's Greek to GCSE (Part 1) as the course reference book.
