Content This unit is the final stage of instruction in the rudiments of the language's morphology and (especially) syntax. It is also the bridging unit between Koine and Attic Greek, and an introduction to the literary and historical study of Greek writers. Students learn all the usual constructions of Attic and Koine Greek and a reasonable percentage of the most common vocabulary. They are well placed to begin the in-depth study of individual texts in CLAN3204 Greek 4.
Outcomes Students are able to (1) translate prepared selected passages of Attic Greek; (2) demonstrate understanding of the morphology and syntax of all common Attic inflections and constructions; (3) demonstrate a broad knowledge of Greek vocabulary; (4) translate unseen passages of simple Attic Greek without reference books; and (5) write a short study on the literary or historical significance of one or more Greek texts.
Assessment Typically this unit is assessed in the following ways: (1) class tests; (2) an essay; and (3) an end-of-semester examination. Further information is available in the unit outline.

Supplementary assessment is not available in this unit except in the case of a bachelor's pass degree student who has obtained a mark of 45 to 49 overall and is currently enrolled in this unit, and it is the only remaining unit that the student must pass in order to complete their course.
