In Κύρου Παιδεία, also known as the Cyropaedia or The Education of Cyrus, Xenophon wrote a work unique for the Ancient Greeks: a novelistic biography providing advice and exhortation. In this account of Cyrus the Great’s rise and reign, Xenophon not only tells a great tale, but ends up inspiring some of the greatest writers of the Renaissance and Enlightenment, both with the subject matter of his work as well as the clarity of his style. In this course, we will be reading carefully selected, unadapted excerpts from Xenophon’s Cyropaedia and discussing them in Ancient Greek.

Few men have inspired such extremes of hate and of love as the great philosopher Socrates. His preeminent student, Plato, recorded (embellished? invented?) the speeches made at Socrates’ trial before the Athenian Assembly, the trial that led to his execution, in a dialogue that is perhaps the most widely read philosophical work in the world. In this class, we will be reading Plato’s rendering of the Apology of Socrates in its entirety, and discussing it in Ancient Greek.

Greek Camp is back. The Ancient Language Institute is moving from the internet to the physical world again this summer. Come join us in July 2024, for a 10-day Ancient Greek immersion camp, led by some of the best Ancient Greek teachers from around the world.

We will be reading, speaking, laughing, chanting, and writing in Greek on the beautiful Winston-Salem campus of Wake Forest University from July 20 – July 29.

Homer Camp is designed for late beginner – advanced Greek students who want to improve their Greek proficiency and read the Iliad and Odyssey with enjoyment.

No matter what form of Ancient Greek you are primarily interested in, the immersive learning experience of Bible Camp will aid you in your path towards proficiency. Bible Camp presents a life-changing opportunity to study Greek immersively under the Direct Method, which the Ancient Language Institute uses with hundreds of students online and in-person every year.

While we will be primarily focusing on Biblical texts, we will also be learning how the study of other Ancient Greek texts can enrich your reading of the Bible. But most of all, we’ll be reading and speaking – a ton – in Ancient Greek!

I know too many seminary graduates who have forgotten the Greek they learned in school, and since I'm planning on going to seminary, I was determined not to be one of them. I'm so glad I signed up to study with ALI. Instead of paradigms and flash cards, we have page turners and Greek conversations. If you can remember what it was like when you first learned to read, how you looked forward to finding out what happens next, then you'll have an idea of what it's like learning Koine with ALI.
