After the many projects carried out at numerous universities in Italy and abroad, the IICS has decided to extend its offer for the summer period also to high school students.
During the course period (two weeks) we will teach all the main topics of Greek grammar and students will be led to learn a large number of words.
The aim of the course is to provide students with the skills to translate a Greek text in a short time* and without using a dictionary.
The course is characterized by the use of Classic Greek as the sole language of communication. The inductive-contextual method employed ensures a more effective and rapid pace for learning grammar, vocabulary and phraseological nexus, indispensable instruments for a solid and authentic knowledge of the language.
*The average time taken by students who have completed our courses to translate a Greek text in the graduation exam is 39 minutes.
Lessons take place from 15:00 to 19:00 from Monday to Friday and cover all the main grammatical structures in addition to the 1200 most frequently used words in Greek literature.
Our teaching method consists of moments alternating between lecture-based lessons and oral and written language-usage exercises, accompanied by activities that call for students’ direct involvement and active participation.
Students are required for 15 minutes a day for home study.
