Bringing Ancient Languages into a Modern Classroom

Who isn’t fascinated by the languages of the past? Whether you’re hoping to go on an Indiana-Jones-style adventure, read ancient sacred texts, learn from the past or simply hope to learn modern languages more easily, learning an ancient language such as Ancient Greek or Latin may be your answer.

The Undergraduate Summer School is offering modules in Ancient Languages, running in Session one (2 – 20 July 2018) and Session two (23 July – 10 August 2018).

Ancient Greek (Intensive Beginners)
This is a beginner-level intensive module that gives you the opportunity to translate basic English into Greek, and to read very simple texts in Greek. This course is ideal for students who are interested in the Hellenic world, and want to study for a Masters or Doctoral degree thus acquiring an essential skill for future research.

Latin (Intensive Beginners)
This beginner-level intensive module gives you a chance to translate basic English into Latin, and to read very simple texts in Latin. It is appropriate if you’re an undergraduate student who would not otherwise have the chance to learn Latin from scratch, a mature student and for anyone with an interest in the Roman world.

Ancient Greek (Intensive Intermediate)
This is an intensive module that will give you the opportunity to build on your very basic knowledge of Ancient Greek, and to read simple texts in Greek. It is ideal for undergraduate students who would not have the chance to improve their Greek.

Latin (Intensive Intermediate)
This intensive module gives you a chance to expand your knowledge of Latin, and to read simple texts in Latin. It is ideal if you intend to study for a Masters or Doctoral degree thus acquiring an essential skill for future research.

Bursaries are available for students from any university or background from the Department of Classics at King’s College London. Visit this webpage for more information. Applications to the Undergraduate Summer School close on 31 May 2018.
