About the course: In this course, we learn the fundamentals of ancient Greek in two semesters. By the end of the year, students are prepared to continue with intermediate Greek (Greek 203), where they will start to read Plato, and will be able to read simple texts, such as Aesop or the New Testament, more or less independently.
