MGRK1601: Junior Modern Greek 1

Practical language classes for students who have very little or no prior knowledge of Greek. This unit is based both on communicative methodology and a functional approach to language. By using the Greek language in a range of contexts, students will develop spoken communication (speaking and listening) skills and to a lesser extent written communication (reading and writing) skills.
