- Week 3: 8 April – 12 April
Length of Course
2pm to 6pm daily
The main focus of the course is on translation skills, supported by revision of vocabulary, grammar and sentence construction. Study for the majority of the course is centred upon translating unseen passages of Classical Greek. Students will be tested in detail each day on the passage they have studied the previous day to ensure that they have a full grasp of the syntax, accidence and grammatical structures, including subordinate clauses. The remaining time is given to workshops in which students will be given help with literary analysis set texts and looking at the literature and culture aspect of the course. Again, the emphasis is on translation of the original Greek, but within an overall understanding of these prescribed texts.
