Elementary Modern Greek
LANG 141
Spring 2021
Section: 01  

This course is an introduction to the language and culture of modern Greece. The fundamentals of reading, writing, and speaking are taught. We start by learning the Greek alphabet and sounding out basic words and expressions. We then progress to acquiring useful vocabulary; practicing in-class dialogue exercises; and eventually constructing original sentences for use in conversation. In addition, we examine different aspects of Greek culture, including modern Greek literature in translation, the Mediterranean diet, contemporary Greek history, and Orthodox Christian spirituality and holiday customs.
