8 credits This course is designed for students with no experience with ancient Greek (or other ancient languages) to read authors such as Homer, Sophocles, Euripides, Plato, and Herodotus in the original language after one semester's intensive work (the equivalent of two semesters of college Greek). Daily drills and frequent quizzes on grammar and syntax will be combined from the beginning with an emphasis on developing skills for translating, reading, and interpreting Greek literature: students will begin to read short selections from classical authors after only a few weeks and longer passages by midterm. Those wishing to enroll in this course should consult with Prof. Cioffi, (rcioffi@bard.edu)  Class size: 16
