Ancient Greek Intermediate Consolidation

This course has no current classes. Please the waiting list.

This course is for those who have a good knowledge of Classical Greek grammar. We read passages in Greek abridged from original sources, providing an insight into the culture. Through reading we build on essential grammar and vocabulary.
