Study classical Syriac, Biblical Hebrew, or Koine Greek in with Polis - The Jerusalem Institute of Languages and Humanities! The institute was established by a group of academics with the shared goal of promoting the learning of ancient and Semitic languages. The founders believe that the best way to understand an ancient or modern text or culture is to become immersed in the language, through listening, speaking, writing, and reading. The Polis Method, which is applied in all language courses, is made up of pedagogical methodologies that mimic the ways in which children are taught their mother tongue.

Using methods such as Total Physical Response and Storytelling, students are constantly involved in the learning process, and are completely immersed in the target language from the first day. This method allows for ancient languages to come alive and be used as a living language. It also creates an environment where students from all over the world can study together and communicate with one another. Students at Polis find a welcoming, warm environment, where they can learn a new language and improve their skills while learning about the cultures and people of Jerusalem and meet people from all over the world.

Summer Intensive Introductory Ancient Greek

June 19-August 11
Summer Introductory Ancient Greek comprises a thorough introduction to the Classical Greek language in eight weeks, using the Joint Association of Classic Teachers' Reading Greek (2nd ed.). In daily classes, students learn new grammatical concepts and morphology, practice reading and translating increasingly complex Greek texts, and complete exercises in Greek to gain an active command of the language. In the latter half of the course, students will also read unadapted Greek from classical prose authors, including Plato and Xenophon. By the end of the 8 weeks, students will be thoroughly familiar with Classical Greek idiom and sentence structure, and will be able to proceed to reading courses in the language.

Summer Introductory Ancient Greek is an intensive course that requires a full-time commitment on the part of the student, meeting approximately 5 hours per day and demanding independent review and memorization in the evenings.

Summer Intensive Intermediate Ancient Greek

June 19-July 28
Summer Intensive Intermediate Greek combines extensive reading of texts with a comprehensive review of Classical grammar and syntax; it prepares students for advanced courses in Greek and for the use of Greek texts in their research. Texts studied are taken from a variety of representative and important Classical authors, and typically include Plato and Herodotus, Demosthenes or Thucydides. The backbone of the review sessions is Mastronarde’s Introduction to Ancient Greek combined with sight reading skill practice. The program meets during both mornings and afternoons for approximately five hours a day. Students are responsible for considerable amounts of class preparation in the evenings, requiring a full-time commitment for the duration of the course.
