Ancient Greek (Intensive) Beginners
This beginner-level intensive module gives you the opportunity to reach a point where you are able to translate basic English into Greek and to read very simple texts in Greek. It replaces one semester of Beginners and Intermediate Greek and is ideal if you intend to study for a Masters or Doctoral degree thus acquiring an essential skill for future research. It is also appropriate if you are an undergraduate students who would not otherwise have the chance to learn Greek from scratch, a mature student and for anyone with an interest in the Hellenic world.
This module will consist of a minimum of 45 contact hours with teaching taking place between 9 am and 5 pm from Monday to Friday

Learning outcomes and objectives
By the end of the module, you should have:
• gained the ability to recognise, explain and use for themselves the basic principles of Greek grammar, to translate simple sentences from Greek to English, and to translate adapted Greek authors into English.
• learnt how to analyse basic sentence structure logically and will begin to develop an understanding of the nuances of the language.
Many of our students get credit for the summer modules taken at King’s. You should approach your home university before applying as it is up to them to apply the credit to your degree programme. We would recommend a three week module would be equivalent to 3-4 US credits or 7.5 ECTS.
