Description

Modern Greek is spoken by about 11 million people in Greece and Cyprus, and in various Greek communities of the diaspora. It is an Indo-European language, but unlike French or German it has no close relatives among modern European languages. Beginners will find that a good many Modern Greek words and roots are already familiar to them from our scientific and technical vocabulary. Knowledge of ancient Greek can help the student of the modern language, but it is by no means a prerequisite.

The units offered focus on the culture and literature of the Greeks over the past 200 years and introduce students to the enticing rhythm of life in modern Greece, the definitive crossroads between west and east, Europe and Asia.

Currently, there are two one-year sequences* available in Modern Greek, catering for students who are beginners, or who have completed VCE Modern Greek. If there is sufficient demand, more units may be added in future, but this cannot be guaranteed.

Students completing the post-VCE sequence in Modern Greek with a high level of achievement, and who obtain an undergraduate qualification, may be eligible to further their studies through course 3921 Master in Interpreting and Translation Studies. Further information about eligibility may be obtained from the school.

* Second year codes are also available for these units, for students in other faculties taking the unit as an elective who are unable to take the first year unit. In addition, fourth and fifth year codes are available to allow these units to be taken at graduate level in courses which permit them.

Units

Students studying a sequence in Modern Greek must complete two units (12 points) from the following:

  • ATS1241 Modern Greek introductory 1
  • ATS1242 Modern Greek introductory 2
  • ATS2245 Modern Greek intermediate 1
  • ATS2246 Modern Greek intermediate 2
