Module overview

‘Ancient Greek 1B’ is designed to build on the knowledge acquired by students who have taken ‘Ancient Greek 1A’, but may also be appropriate for those with some previous alternative experience (e.g. a GCSE). The module will improve your ability to read, comprehend, and translate basic ancient Greek with increased speed and fluency. You will expand your knowledge of Greek syntax and grammar, while acquiring a wider range of vocabulary. As well as thinking about best practice when translating (from Greek to English and vice versa), you will start to express your own ideas in written (classical Attic) Greek. By the end of the module, you will have been introduced to the works of several important Greek authors, such as Xenophon and Herodotus; you will also be familiar with critical linguistic and analytic skills that can be applied to the sources you are studying in other modules.
