Ancient Greek Translation Master Classes

GinaMay.co.uk is proud to announce a series of eight two hour masterclasses for translating primary source Ancient Greek texts. These sessions can be booked individually or all eight together which qualifies you for a substantial discount. The series of masterclasses are being presented three times over the next 12 months.

Each week we will translate an extract from a different source which will be provided in advance via email.  Before each class you will also receive some suggestions for background reading which will inform your thinking and provide a context for the source. The texts to be translated include some of those by Aristotle, Homer, Hesiod, Thucydides, Xenophon, Pausanius and Herodotus.

These classes are designed for intermediate-advanced level Ancient Greek learners who want to expand their skill and learn how to tackle extracts from the texts that underpin the study of the ancient world.  If you have no knowledge of Ancient Greek, you are advised to do the Introduction to Ancient Greek course in advance.  If you are unsure about whether your level of Greek is suitable for these classes, please email Gina on gina@ginamay.co.uk

Upgraded Course Booking Systems

In the interests of adding new features, discount coupons and simplifying the process, we’ve upgraded our online course booking system. The new system should be quicker, more secure and clearer to use.

We’ve removed the old ticket system that some pages refer to and will be removing the old out of date links as we go. Now to buy a course place just open our Home page and find your course or event.
