      Macquarie Ancient Languages Winter Week 2019

      The Macquarie Ancient Languages School (MALS) provides an opportunity to engage with ancient cultures through the study of their languages in a friendly and stimulating environment. Each year we run a Summer Week in the second week of January and a Winter Week in early July. This Winter Week MALS is offering intensive courses in Classical Greek, Biblical and Patristic Greek, Latin, Egyptian Hieroglyphs, Hebrew, Akkadian, Coptic, and the Australian Indigenous Language Gamilaraay. For full course details (course levels, texts, tutors, timetable etc.) please see the current program available on our website: Our week-long session will run on the Macquarie University campus (North Ryde, NSW). It will be led by our team of dedicated tutors, many of whom are early career researchers in relevant fields or highly experienced language teachers working in the secondary or tertiary sector.  Our daily timetable (9.00am-4.00pm) includes four language learning sessions, interspersed with morning and afternoon teas (included in course cost) and a choice each day of two lunchtime seminars focused on historical, classical, or linguistic themes. If students wish, they may now purchase lunch packs at the time of enrolment.  MALS employs methods designed to support adult learners (16 years of age and up) from a wide range of backgrounds. It offers a range of courses and language levels to suit a variety of language learners. You may, for instance, be a university student wanting to begin your engagement with ancient languages or strengthen developing skills and experience. You may be a teacher working in the secondary sphere and wishing to enhance your existing skill set. You may be someone who has always been wanting to learn one of the languages we offer or one of our many MALS veterans who enjoys exploring new texts with like-minded people.
