For a peek into Greek, join us this summer as we learn how to read all over again–this time in the ancient language of the likes of Socrates and Euripides! The instructor will walk students through the alphabet, covering the name and pronunciation of each letter, and we will even practice sounding out real Greek words. If time allows, students will also get an introduction to the basic anatomy of the Greek verb. If you plan to take a beginning Greek course (UE Greek, MS Greek I, or HS Greek I) in the fall, this course will be invaluable preparation! Or, if you’ve ever been intrigued by Greek, but aren’t sure if it’s right for you, this is a great way for you to get acquainted. This will be a light-hearted course with optional homework.
