This non-assessed unit focuses on basic grammar and syntax; it also offers a brief discussion of the transmission of the text, and pays attention to idiomatic expressions in New Testament Greek. Reading from the original text is emphasised from the start. The average student needs to set aside at least two hours per week for private study, including the revision of work, translation exercises and the learning of vocabulary. The unit leads on to a second year (122 Basic Greek B) which covers the remaining grammar.
