Latin and Greek for the Modern World

03/22/17-05/10/17

Over 60% of English vocabulary is derived from Latin and Greek as well as 90% of scientific and technical terms. You will be introduced to the basics of the Latin and Greek languages (including how to read Greek script); epic poetry, history, mythology, and culture will also be explored. Learning both Latin and Greek concurrently hearkens back to a traditional model of classics education which stressed logic, critical thinking, and making connections across disciplines.
