Modern Greek Course for Archaeologists and Classicists
13-29 June 2015; Island of Ikaria, Greece
This course is designed for those who wish to learn Modern Greek to enhance their study of/work on Classical Antiquity. Texts and vocabulary will be targeted towards ancient and archaeological themes, as well as to the demands of professional communication in Modern Greek (in the field, at museums, with local authorities, etc.).
Courses are offered at beginner, intermediate and advanced levels (A, B, Γ).
Class sizes are small (no more than 8 students) for maximum speaking time.
The course provides 3.5 full hours (60’ / hour) of instruction daily (52.5h full hours in total: significantly more than a single semester’s worth [13 weeks semester x 4 class/week x 50 minutes/class = 43 hours and 20 minutes!]).
The course emphasizes all critical language skills (speaking, listening, reading and writing) and so is appropriate for students preparing to take Modern Greek reading / translation exams.
