Ancient Greek Advanced 1 - Online

This is a continuation from Latin Intermediate Revision. The closeness of inspection in reading Latin fosters precision in the use of words. It also provides a model for careful reading and writing of English. Each meeting will look at some aspects of Roman history and culture, in the context of the study of extracts from two Latin authors.
