Organisation

Two classes per week: Monday 1-3 (H3.44) and Tuesday 12-1 (H0.03).

There are two classes per week for a total of three hours. Two hours are dedicated to the set texts and one hour to Greek grammar and unprepared translation practice.

Students are expected to prepare work at home in advance of the classes: sections of the set texts before the set texts classes (so that the class could be spent on refining translations, discussing difficult linguistic points, matters of style and interpretation) and grammar and translation exercises in advance of the grammar classes.

Material for the grammar classes will be provided in class and on the module site, but it is essential that the students bring with them their own copies of the Greek-English lexicon and James Morwood's grammar of classical Greek, or a Greek grammar and a Greek dictionary of their choice.
