GREEK LANGUAGE

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

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, each group will be composed of no more than ten participants.

Three different learning levels
When registering, the participants will choose one of these three levels: A1, A2 or B1.

Students must have the following books: Athènaze I (the much augmented Italian edition) and Meletèmata I. The following chart shows the chapters of Athènaze I to be covered:
A1: chapters I through V;
A2: chapters VI through X;
B1: chapters XI through XV.

In the three levels, the following points of grammar will be dealt with, respectively:
A1: 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;
A2: all the declensions; second class adjectives; the present indicative middle; the present participle active and middle; numerals; the interrogative tís and the indefinite tis.
B1: the 1st and the 2nd aorist, the imperfect, the relative pronoun and relative clauses, 3rd declension nouns with stem in -εσ-, comparatives and superlatives of adjectives and adverbs, the demonstratives οὗτος, ὅδε, ἐκεῖνος, expressions of time, interrogative and indefinite adverbs.

Dates of the courses
A1 and A2 level courses will be held from the 18th of April to the 16th of June (18 one-hour lessons: two per week).

B1 level course will be held from the 19th of April to the 17th of June (18 one-hour lessons: two per week).
The same courses, along with one of the following level (B2), will be held again from July to August and from October to December: so, if from April to June you have followed the lessons of the A2 level, from July you will be able, if you wish, to follow the lessons of the B1 level. 
All lessons will be held on  Zoom. They will follow this timetable:
A1: every Monday and Thursday, from the 18th of April to the 16th of June: lessons will begin at 5:45 p. m., Rome time (UTC + 2).
A2: every Monday and Thursday, from the 18th of April to the 16th of June: lessons will begin at 7 p. m., Rome time (UTC + 2).
B1: every Tuesday and Friday, from the the 19th of April to the 17th of June: lessons will begin at 7 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 some groups on Whatsapp or similar programmes.
