CL1054/2054 Greek Language

This module, aimed at students who have either completed Elementary Greek or studied Greek in secondary school, further develops language skills and provides a taste of Greek authors not covered in the Greek Authors and Topics modules. In the first term we will revise morphology, syntax and vocabulary and analyse the language of a speech of Lysias. The second term is entirely devoted to training in unseen translation from Greek into English.
