Course Description

GK 506 is an introduction to fundamental Greek vocabulary, morphology (word forms), and principles of syntax. The primary goal of this class is reading proficiency in the Greek language. To that end, examinations will test students knowledge of vocabulary, morphology, review translation, and ability to read Greek at sight. Students will learn enough basic grammar and vocabulary to begin reading a variety of classical and Hellenistic authors from Homer to Saint Paul. This course and the second semester (GK 507) are prerequisites of both GK 312 and GK 319. Students are responsible for attending class and completing the assigned homework for the day. Attendance is essential to success in this course. Texts L. A. Wilding, revised by C. Shelmerdine, Wildings Greek for Beginners (Focus Publishing, 2001).
