Ancient Greek is a fascinating, rich and hugely influential language - knowledge of it can help with understanding countless wider subjects, from literature and philosophy, to history or art, and - most importantly for us - the wonderful world of ancient mythology! In this class, I will introduce learners to the essential building blocks of the language - the letters. We will practise reading, writing, and pronouncing each letter in the upper- and lower-case alphabets. No prior experience...
Students will leave with a beginner's understanding of the Ancient Greek upper- and lower-case alphabet - gaining familiarity with letter names and forms. They will be able to write and transliterate basic words and names from mythology.
I achieved A* in both my Latin and Ancient Greek GCSEs and A Levels (British high school exams for 16 year olds and school leavers respectively). These exams featured complex language and literature components. I continued my study of these ancient civilisations at university. I have two degrees from the University of Cambridge (a Master's and First Class BA in History) - in both degrees I took papers on Ancient Rome and Greece, further adding to my classical education. I also have experience of teaching introductory Latin to 10/11 year olds, giving me teaching experience alongside my strong academic record.
Learners will be given a handout to review before class. Students should look at this briefly so they come to class with a very basic familiarity with the lettering and letter names - however no in-depth understanding, memorisation, or time commitment is expected! This is a class designed for beginners!
