Credit points: 15

Subject outline

In this subject we continue from 'Greek 1' with students learning to handle common interpersonal transactions in Greek with confidence as well as to understand and produce (in speech and writing) simple descriptions, narrations and expressions of attitudes and opinions. Relevant aspects of contemporary Greek society and culture are also introduced. The emphasis continues to be on practice at listening, reading, speaking and writing Greek in everyday situations, but students are also introduced to the structure of the language.
