No pre-requisite is needed.

– Understanding of an Ancient Greek text, without using the dictionary
– In-depth knowledge of the most important structures of Greek grammar
– Knowledge of the 1500 most frequent words in Greek classical literature

Through the reading of texts in Ancient Greek, which are designed to encourage language learning, students deal with literary classical Greek (Attic Greek, V century b.C.) morphology, syntax and phraseology.
Lessons will be held completely in Ancient Greek: following the fundamentals of the inductive-contextual methodology, the active use of Greek language both by the students and the teacher turns passive learning into an active competence, thus ensuring a sound knowledge of the language. Readings of some original Greek texts complete the course program. See the program in details
The course consists in 50 video-lessons, which are available on demand according to the student’s needs: at the time of purchase, the student will receive a link through which she or he will be able to view the video-lessons until the expiration of the link itself.
