The paper explores the basic principles of the Ancient Greek curriculum as a theoretical-methodological seminar of the Language, Literature, and Culture program at University of Belgrade (Faculty of Philology). At the Department for Modern Greek studies, Ancient Greek is taught as a mandatory theoretical-methodological course in the context of learning Modern Greek. It is also offered to all the students of the Faculty of Philology as an optional course, but in the context of the theory of language. The course itself consists of lectures (with integrated practical work), utilizing the grammar-translation method (as the subject is literary language) with elements of the communicative method, in accordance with what students need to learn the modern (Greek) language. Various texts are used as examples of grammatical rules. Rules are formulated on the basis of prescriptive grammar, through a two-way translation process.
