Macrina Posted June 3, 2014 Share Posted June 3, 2014 My ancient languages are weak and I know I need to strengthen them. Unfortunately, the easy, cheap solutions for Greek and Latin aren't available in my city this year. But I do have an option for graduate-level coptic, and since one of my interests is ancient monasticism, that's not completely out of my range. Should I take the coptic course? Or work to find something to give me credit in a more mainstream language? I guess the real question is: should I take a less common language at a more appropriate level or should I focus on the basics, even if I end up doing them at an undergraduate/very introductory level? (fWIW, i do have a bit of both Greek and Latin, but nothing 'on paper') All of my great language options haven't come through this year so I'm scrambling to firm up my plans for the fall. Any advice is much appreciated. Thanks. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
