Course Overview



Have you always had an interest in Greek mythology but found the prospect of reading Homer's 'Iliad' or 'The Odyssey' too daunting? Do you love all the stories but find it hard to remember all the different Greek names, who everyone is and what they did? Then this course is for you. Through the use of short stories, comprehension and discussions, this course explains the build-up to the Trojan War, how it happened and who was involved. The course will allow students to develop their understanding of Ancient Greece and inspire them to explore more myths and legends. This lesson series is equally appropriate for those requiring an understanding of this subject to pass an exam or for those who are simply curious about Greek mythology and the Trojan War.
