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: A2, B2.1 or B2.2. The B1, B2.2 and C1.1 courses will be held in autumn.

Students must have the following books: Athènaze I (the much augmented Italian edition) and Meletèmata I for the level A2, and Athènaze II and Meletèmata II for the levels B2.1 and B2.2.
The following chart shows the chapters of Athènaze I (and Athènaze II) to be covered:

A2: chapters VI through X;
B2.1: chapters XV through XVIII;
B2.2: chapters XIX through XXII.

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 τίς and the indefinite τɩς;
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;
B2.1: the 3rd aorist; contracted verbs in -ο-; contracted nouns of the 2nd declension; the verbs δύναμαι, κεῖμαι and ἐπίσταμαι; the irregular nouns ἡ ναῦς and ὁ βοῦς; numerals; the future; the verbs εἶμι, δίδωμι and τίθημι; final clauses with ὡς and the future participle; the meanings of αὐτός; 3rd declension adjectives of the group of ταχύς, ταχεῖα, ταχύ;
B2.2: the genitive absolute; the use of the article, and particularly the attributive and predicative position; the verb ἵστημι; the supplementary participle; the subjunctive mood; the verb ἵημι; clauses of fearing; the eventual subjunctive with ἄν; the verb δείκνυμι; other verbs with the suffix -νῡ-/-νυ-; the indirect speech.

Dates of the courses
The three courses will be held from the 8th of April to the 13th of June. Each course is divided into 20 one-hour lessons: two per week.

The levels B1, B2.2 and C1.1 will be held in autumn: so, if from April to June you have followed the lessons of the A2 level, from October 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:
A2: every Monday and Thursday, from the 8th of April to the 13th of June: lessons will begin at 5:45 p. m., Rome time (UTC + 2).
B2.1: every Monday and Thursday, from the 8th of April to the 13th of June: lessons will begin at 4:30 p. m., Rome time (UTC + 2).
B2.2
: every Monday and Thursday, from the 8th of April to the 13th 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.
