Instruction in more advanced grammar and syntax is effected through both formal methods and drills. By the end of the term students are exposed to approximately four-fifths of modern Greek grammar and syntax and are expected to be linguistically competent in a variety of everyday contexts. Grading is based on class participation, quizzes, a one-hour midterm exam, and a final.

This is the final term of the Modern Greek language sequence, and students will be able to meet their language requirement. The course focuses on expanding vocabulary through reading more complex journalistic prose and literary texts (20th-century poetry and prose) and discussion of those texts. Special attention is paid to the historical depth of the language through instruction in etymology. The proficiency gained by the end of the course should enable students to express themselves in Modern Greek on topics of interest; students ought to be able to read, with dictionary help, all writing in Standard Modern Greek. Class tests, one midterm, and a final examination along with class participation will determine the final grade.
