Hard to believe that we ten will be entering our fourth year of Greek with Dr Boria at the Adelaide WEA. I still haven’t got a hold of those progressive active participles. We love our lessons. Our books – Athenaze 1 textbook and workbook (yes, we are only now completing book one) – are tattered to various degrees – mine is the worst of all. Perhaps we will start on Athenaze 2 this year? (The Athenaze books are available at Dymocks in the city, or online). More εταιροι και εταιραι* would be welcome ….so please join us! No-one is made to feel stupid for their mistakes (or I’d never be able to show my face) and we have a lot of laughs – strange as that may seem.
If you know Athenaze, or have reached a comparable level in another text, you’ll fit right in. As we are going onto “real” Greek text, having a different vocabulary will not matter as much.
Also, there will be a Greek 1 class on Thursday evening. Whether you don’t know your soft breathing from your hard, you have learnt Greek at some point, you wish to supplement your Latin or you just would like to be able to insult your slave in ancient Greek – do come along.
The Athenaze books are available at Dymocks in the city, or online. If you’re just not sure, please contact us via the comments or the contact form.
The new catalogue extracts are here, and a link to the WEA page is below that (you may need to cut and paste) –
For complete beginners and those with a little knowledge. Text books required: Athenaze Book 1: An Introduction to Ancient Greek + Athenaze Workbook 1.
Further study in Classical Greek for those who have completed Classical Greek 3 or equivalent. Texts: Athenaze 2 + workbook, revised editions.
*Apologies – I don’t know how to work the breathings and accents on my keyboard.
Let us soothe our technological bêtes noire with this studious, Arcadian scene…
