Classical Language and Texts: Greek I and II (CLA1203)

60 credits

‘Greek I and II’ – commonly known as ‘Fast Track Greek’ –  is an intensive 60-credit module that brings its successful students to Level 2 or A-level reading ability in Ancient Greek in a single year. The module is particularly appropriate for launching students arriving in Exeter with A-Level Latin but little or no experience of Greek onto the full traditional Classics degree, but all are welcome. There are no pre- or co-requisites, though some experience of successful language learning is helpful. The first semester is devoted to linguistic exercises, the second chiefly to the reading of Classical Greek texts in the original, typically Xenophon, Homer, Herodotus, Euripides and Plato.
