Macquarie Ancient Languages School Summer Week
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 Summer Week MALS is offering intensive courses in Classical Greek, Biblical and Patristic Greek, Egyptian Hieroglyphs, Coptic, Hebrew, and Akkadian. For full course details (course levels, texts, tutors, timetable etc.) please visit our Facebook page or Departmental Website for the 2017 Summer program.
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 postgraduate students embarking on research in relevant fields or language teachers working in the secondary or tertiary sector.
The School employs methods designed to support adult learners (16 years of age and up) from a wide range of backgrounds. You may, for instance, be a university student wanting to begin your engagement with ancient languages or strengthen existing skills and experience. 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.
