Living ancient Greek School


Greek afternoon courses taught as a living language

Would you be able to read a Greek script with the same ability you are able to understand a text in your own language, without the necessary aid of a dictionary in every moment?
The living ancient Greek School is designed to meet the aspirations of a growing number of students, scholars and lovers of Greek language and literature who wish to learn the language of ancient culture in a direct and effective way.

Combining the teaching methods of the ancient humanistic schools with the most modern transmission techniques of modern languages, the courses of the School stimulate the development of the skills of the student following the natural progression of language learning. From the very first session, the lessons are conducted in Greek and the students are encouraged to express themselves in the target language when talking both to the teacher and to each other. Vocabulary and grammatical structures follow those of V century Attic Greek.

The lessons, while not giving up the exposition of grammar and syntax, which always represent the structure of a language, aim to give participants the opportunity to learn Greek in the same way as any other language, through active and direct use, making it the only medium of communication between the teacher and the students for the whole duration of the lessons, providing students the opportunity to more deeply and more naturally understand a text (both oral and written) in Greek.

N.B.: the course will be held if a minimum of 10 students will enroll it.
