The Warburg Institute offers a continuation of its online course in Classical Greek for beginners with a further eight sessions across the Summer 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 be working through the final sections of John Taylor's Greek to GCSE (Part 1 - revised edition).
