Participate in the Greek literature course given in the Greek language to improve your language skills and enrich your knowledge of Greece and Greek culture. The course is intended for adults who are speakers of modern Greek as a second language, and who can understand a literary text in Greek, even with the assistance of a dictionary, as well as discuss the text and express their opinion about it, again in Greek.
The texts will be sent to the students in advance, at least a month before the beginning of the lessons. During the course we will look at excerpts from literary texts and poems chosen from Greek literature of the early – middle 20th century. The aim of the course is both the enrichment of vocabulary and an increased ease in expression for each student, as well as an increased knowledge of Greek authors and trends in Greek literature. A better understanding of the social and political background of the era when the texts were written is an additional important benefit.
