Introduction to Attic Greek: Volume 4

We are pleased to share the fourth volume of this Learning Module at Kosmos Society: Introduction to Attic Greek.

This comprises a series of video presentations made by Leonard Muellner (Professor Emeritus of Classical Studies at Brandeis University) and Belisi Gillespie. They cover the content covered in two semesters of a college-level Introduction to Ancient Greek course. These videos are designed to be used in conjunction with the book Greek: An Intensive Course by Hardy Hansen and Gerald M. Quinn. Volume 4 covers material from units 11–14.

You can find the complete video playlist here.
