Course Description: Have you studied Greek in the past and want a refresher with a communicative component? Or are you interested in improving your competence in reading ancient Greek texts? Miraglia & Bórri's edition of Athenaze (Balme & Lawall) offers a plethora of stories organized by degrees of difficulty that can help us achieve these goals. We will start from the first chapter and discuss all the grammar and vocabulary points covered in the textbook. The instructor will suggest (but not require) some written exercises from the Meletēmata workbook, or other sources, that will help develop all four skills. The instructor will give feedback and open discussion on these or any other topics related to teaching ancient Greek with C.I. methodology or through the ‘natural’ method.
Level: Level: Beginner-Intermediate. This approach is particularly effective for students and teachers of Greek with a first-year knowledge of Greek grammar but are relatively new to active/spoken Greek.
Textbook: Athenaze: Introduzione al greco antico.
