Ancient Greek is, without a doubt, a language – vehicle of culture with a highly esteemed presence in Classical Studies, which is why it is still taught in many schools and universities all around the world. Annually, the Hellenic Language School “Alexander the Great” has many students that have studied Ancient Greek (students or graduates of classical schools). At the same time, the School collaborates with many European classical schools, either directly, or through theOrganization for the Internationalisation of Greek Language and EUROCLASSICA, in order to aid students who already know Ancient Greek learn Modern Greek.
“A passage from Ancient to Modern Greek” is aimed at students and alumni of classical schools and also at anyone who is interested, abroad and in Greece as well, in learning Modern Greek and already has some basic knowledge of the ancient language. The book focuses on teaching grammatical phenomena and vocabulary of Modern Greek,
which is approached in comparison to Ancient Greek, while it also includes many exercises to practice and revise. The texts chosen for each unit gradually advance, as much as possible, from the ancient to the byzantine and modern Greek times, so as todemonstrate the unity of the language through the centuries.
