Description

NB: The final class of the Spring Term due for 16 March 2020 has been postponed and will be rescheduled for the start of session in the Summer Term - date to be confirmed.

The Warburg Institute continues its new short course in Classical Greek for beginners with a further eight-sessions across the Spring Term 2020. The programme is designed for complete beginners, and follows on from last term's classes. A principal aim will be 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. In addition to Latin, Greek was known to and used by writers of the early modern period. 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, and a further dimension of the course will be a consideration of the implications of using Greek during the 14th to the 17th centuries. 

In the first instance, we are offering a 10% discount for current students on the Autumn 2019 course to book for the Spring course. This offer will be open until Friday 6 December 2019.
