Description

The Warburg Institute offers an eight-session online course across the Autumn Term in Classical Greek for complete beginners. 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. The language textbook we will be using is John Taylor's Greek to GCSE (Part 1).
