Language Course

Coptic Fall


Coptic is a valuable resource for the study of early Christianity and of multicultural Egypt during First Millennium CE. The Bohairic Coptic course at the Polis Institute is developed under a grant titled ‘Project for the Development of Bohairic Dialect.’ Using the Polis Method, all Coptic classes are be taught using full immersion and aim to develop speaking, listening, reading, and writing skills. Source texts are used to create a new learning experience for Coptic as a spoken language, and students will have tools to read and analyze texts in Coptic.

All courses are taught using The Polis Method which immerses students in the target language from the very first class which allows learning in a more natural way. The Polis Method focuses on total immersion and speech fluency and we believe helps students acquire the language quicker than the traditional grammar translation method.
