Description

Core course


This course enables students to build on the two previous years’ work to reach a more advanced level. The intention is to lead participants towards a fairly comprehensive understanding of the Greek language through the study of a variety of documents (written, audio, and video). The course emphasizes the use of correct spoken and written Greek at an advanced level with the aim of further stimulating reading abilities. Through readings focusing on the cultural and linguistic heritage of the Greek-speaking world, students will have an opportunity to develop their mastery of grammar, vocabulary, and the Greek language more generally. Students will also be introduced to “culture-specific” components of the Greek language and, through the study of the language, will continue to gain an insight into aspects of Greek and Cypriot culture.
