We teach ancient Greek online for beginners to intermediate or advanced students. Depending on your personal goals we focus either on Koine/New Testament Greek or Attic Greek.
Koine Greek for Beginners
In this course you will learn Koine Greek, the dialect of the New Testament, the Septuagint and of many other Hellenistic and late antique texts. We use the book “Polis – Speaking Ancient Greek as a Living Language” with its unique approach of teaching Greek in Greek. If you want to read the New Testament in its original language, this course is highly recommended for you. The course is suitable for complete beginners as well as for students who want to refresh their (biblical) Greek.
Koine Greek Level II
This course is a continuation of the beginners course. We will be using the second volume of the Polis series, which is available on Amazon as a Kindle ebook (see here).
Attic Greek for Beginners
Athens was a major political force in the Greek world of the 5th century BCE. Even after the city’s politcal power had declined its cultural influence remained for centuries. If you want to learn the dialect of Plato, Aristotle, Sophocles and other timeless writers, this course is for you. We will be using the book “Athenaze”, supplemented by “Alexandros to Hellenikon Paidion” (for more information, see our “Books” section here).
If you know some ancient Greek already but would like to start using the language actively in conversations, this course will help you doing so. We will use the German booklet “Sprechen Sie Attisch?” (“Do you speak Attic?”) as a basis and supplement it with other materials like original ancient phrase books (“Colloquia of the Hermeneumata Pseudodositheana“).
We also offer private lessons tailored to your personal needs and goals. We can, for example, read a text together that you are interested in, paraphrasing and discussing it in ancient Greek. Scheduling for private lessons and the number of sessions are flexible.
There are bulk discounts available (booking more than one lesson at once) as well as discounts for students. Just inquire at:
