Course Content (Syllabus)
The course focuses on specific areas in the comparative analysis of the structure of English and Modern Greek which have been shown to be especially relevant to the teaching of Greek as a second/foreign language. The topics to be addressed include word order and information structure, sentence types, the functions of auxiliary verbs, Tense-Aspect-Mood distinctions, (non-)finiteness, the grammatical case system, etc. These analyses will be contrasted to the contents of textbooks and syllabi for the teaching of Greek as a second/foreign language. Students will need to work with detailed studies of the description and comparison of English and Greek and to reflect on their impact on the teaching of Greek to speakers of English.
