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.

Two different learning levels
When registering, the participants will choose one of these two levels: A2 or B1. The A1 and B2.1 courses will start in January, 2023.

Students must have the following books: Athènaze I (the much augmented Italian edition) and Meletèmata I for the levels A2 and B1.
The following chart shows the chapters of Athènaze I to be covered:

A2: chapters VI through X;
B1: chapters XI through XV.

In the four 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.
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.

Dates of the courses
A2 level course will be held from the 10th of October to the 15th of December (20 one-hour lessons: two per week).
B1 level course will be held from the 11th of October to the 16th of December (20 one-hour lessons: two per week).

The same courses, along with the levels A1 and B2.1, will be held again from January to March and from April to June: so, if from October to December you have followed the lessons of the A2 level, from January 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 10th of October to the 15th of December: lessons will begin at 5:45 p. m., Rome time (UTC + 2).
