University of Toronto, Department of Classics

GRK 202H1F Intermediate Ancient Greek II
Continued language training with readings in Classical Greek prose.  This course will also introduce students to Classical Greek verse.  Readings will include selections from Plato, The Republic I and Euripides' Medea.
EVALUATION: assignments, mid-term test and final examination.  Readings and assignments will be provided by the instructor.
PREREQUISITE: GRK 100Y1Y and the permission of the Department.
M.B. Wallace ** MWF 10-1 **

GRK202H1 F is a half-course, a special offering of the second half of our second-year Ancient Greek sequence.  It is intended for talented students who will have completed first-year Greek by May and want to push ahead, in order to reach the point where they are ready to enrol in author-based third-year courses in September.  Admittance requires the consent of the instructor, and may entail a short placement test as well as a brief interview.  It will be a lot of work for the individuals admitted, but we hope it will be an attractive option to those keen to get ahead.
