Online summer Greek course

Graecia capta ferum victorem cepit, et artes
intulit agresti Latio.

Horace, Epistolae, II, 1, 156

What is it?
A summer Greek language course, based on the “nature”, or “inductive-contextual”, method, and directed towards everyone, from teachers to students to plain enthusiasts, who has a love for the language of Plato.

Elementary level
This summer we’ll offer only the elementary level, A1.
Students must have the following books:
Athènaze I (the much augmented Italian edition) and Meletèmata I. We’ll study the first five chapters, in which the following points of grammar are dealt with: the alphabet; Greek orthography and pronunciation; the article; the first and second declension; first class adjectives; personal pronouns; possessives; the present indicative active; the imperative active; the infinitive active.

A course tailored for you
We believe that Greek is a language too, and that in order to learn any language well, one must exercise the four basic linguistic skills: listening, speaking, reading and writing.
We want everybody to take an active part in our lessons: that’s why, the group will be composed of no more than ten participants.
To get an idea of how our lessons go, and to choose the right level, we recommend taking a look at the following video.

Dates of the course and timetable of lessons
The course will be held from the 4th of July to the 24th of August (16 75-minute lessons: two per week).
The following level (A2) will be held from October to December: so, if during the summer you have followed the lessons of the A1 level, from October you will be able, if you wish, to follow the lessons of the A2 level.
All lessons will be held on Zoom. They will follow this timetable: every Tuesday and Thursday, at 4:15 p. m., Rome time (UTC + 2).
Should you be unable to attend a lesson, the Schola Latina will be glad to provide you with a video recording.

To help participants to meet and make friends, we’ll form a group on Whatsapp or similar programmes.

Teaching material
Students must have the following books:
Athènaze I (the much augmented Italian edition) and Meletèmata I. Other teaching material will be provided by our teacher during the lessons.

All lessons will be held by Mr
Renan Marques Liparotti.
