This course is an introduction to the rich and beautiful language of ancient Greek, the language of Homer, Plato and Euripides. In the first semester students will begin to learn the grammar and syntax of the language and start developing the vocabulary necessary to appreciate and understand Greek with the goal of reading as soon as possible. Throughout the semester we'll also explore some inscriptions and dip our toes into both Herodotus and biblical Greek.
This course is a prerequisite for GRK102.
