北京大学古希腊语、拉丁语标准考试

PKU STANDARDISED TEST ELEMENTARY LATIN AND ELEMENTARY GREEK

 

附件:Announcement Elem Lat&Greek Apr 2018 

 

 

         20179月北京大学西方古典学中心成功举办了汉语学界的第一次初级拉丁语标准化考试。设置与举办这一考试是因为,我们坚信掌握希腊语和拉丁语是学习和研究西方古代和中世纪历史、文学和哲学等的基础,而标准化的考试可以让我们能够更好地评估和巩固这一基础。在去年测试的基础上,北京大学将于20184月推出初级拉丁语和古希腊语两门古代语言的标准化考试,并欢迎港澳台地区在内的全国高校学生和青年学者报名参加。初级拉丁语标准考试将在428日举行,初级古希腊语标准考试在429日举行,地点将在北京大学校内,具体场所另行通知。北京大学拉丁语和希腊语标准考试目前不收取报名费;参加考试所需要的交通和食宿费用由考生自己解决。北京大学西方古典学中心将邮寄成绩证明给外地考生;北京的参与人可前来我中心自取。

 

Last year in September, the Centre for Classical and Medieval Studies at Peking University organised its first standardised test in Elementary Latin. Behind this move was a firm belief that the promotion of Latin and Ancient Greek among students in ancient and medieval literature, history and philosophy would be best served by the creation of a standard for assessing proficiency in those two classical languages. With 25 participants the first test has been very successful. Eager to continue on this path, we are pleased to announce that tests not only in Elementary Latin, but also in Elementary Greek will be offered next month at Peking University. The tests are open to students and young scholars from universities across China, including those in Taiwan and the Special Administrative Regions of Hong Kong and Macao. The test in Elementary Latin is scheduled to take place on Saturday the 28th of April; the test in Elementary Greek on Sunday the 29th of April.  

 

The Centre for Classical and Medieval Studies at Peking University will inform participants of their results by letter.
