Why Choose Ancient Greek?

If you have an interest in classics or Ancient Greek literature then it could be very beneficial to read such texts in the original language.  Many important nuances and details are lost in translation!  Another good reason to study Ancient Greek is the power of vocabulary building and enhanced grammar in English.  Although you may not realise it, Ancient Greek is the basis for many English words, ranging from alpha to 'zodiac'. More than half of all English vocabulary items and 90% of our store of scientific terminology stems from either Ancient Greek or Latin. If you are working towards a career in law or the sciences you are likely to find Ancient Greek helpful for many of the words you will need to master.
