The International Byzantine Greek Summer School offers courses in medieval Greek language at three levels:
LEVEL 1 BEGINNERS (18 – 29 JULY)
The Level 1 course is for absolute beginners in Byzantine Greek. It starts with the Greek alphabet and takes students through the basic grammar of Greek to the point where they can begin to translate simple Greek texts with the aid of a dictionary.
Further information about the Level 1 course
LEVEL 2 INTERMEDIATE (1 – 12 AUGUST)
The Level 2 course carries straight on from the Level 1 course, completing the coverage of basic Greek grammar and introducing students to a variety of Greek texts. Each year a number of people take both courses.
If the number of participants justifies it (as it did 2012-4) an additional course, Level-2.5 (Higher Intermediate), will be introduced for the more advanced applicants to Level-2, but this course is not offered as a confirmed option at the application stage.
Further information about the Level 2 and 2.5 course
LEVEL 3 ADVANCED READING (1 –12 AUGUST)
Level 3 is an Advanced Reading course for those who successfully completed Level-2 in a previous year and have made considerable further progress since, or those have acquired the necessary familiarity with Greek by other means.
