This unit takes up the study of the language from CLAN2201 Greek 1, which is a prerequisite for it. Students continue to read Koine texts (the 'common' form of the language introduced in the first unit) and through graded exercises extend their knowledge of Ancient Greek vocabulary and grammar. In particular, the unit concentrates on the syntax, or sentence construction, of the language, since much of the morphology, the changing forms of individual words, has been covered in CLAN2201 Greek 1.
Students are able to (1) recognise and describe the forms and functions of a greater variety of Greek nouns, adjectives, pronouns and verbs; (2) demonstrate understanding of more complex Greek sentence structure (syntax); (3) translate from Greek, without the aid of dictionaries, more complex passages composed of a larger set vocabulary; (4) compose more complex Greek sentences from a larger set vocabulary; and (5) use correct grammatical, especially syntactical, terminology in the analysis of Greek words and sentences.
Indicative assessments in this unit are as follows: (1) class tests and (2) 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.
