Reading Ancient Greek Literature (5) (OUDCE Course)

Ref: C3744472

For students who already have a pretty secure grasp of the fundamentals of the language, and who would like to read some classic Greek texts in a thorough, studious, and supportive environment. In the process of reading texts we will also concentrate on securing and developing the fundamentals and nuances of the language through an examination of the Ancient Greeks and their literature. This will involve a relaxed yet focussed exploration of the Greek language and its influence today, and students should anticipate being able to read, understand, and make an informed personal response to the original material.
