Can We Preserve Ancient Languages for Future Generations?
If we can't inspire an interest in the next generation, do these ancient languages have a future?
Dear Classical Wisdom Reader,
Today children already have so many expectations. From excelling in school, practicing sports and hobbies, to learning languages that can give them the ‘competitive’ edge, there simply isn't enough time as it is to fit it all in.
In our modern overloaded schedules, it's extremely difficult to see how ancient Greek and Latin feature in young people's lives.
But if we can't inspire an interest in the next generation, do these ancient languages have a future?
This January 11th, we'll bring together an elite panel of ancient Greek and Latin teachers to discuss how can we instill an interest in the youth today, so we can help preserve our collective history for tomorrow.
Featuring the famous Eugenia Manolidou, Greek classical composer, and course director at ancient Greek school Elliniki Agogi, Steven Hunt, from the University of Cambridge and Classics for All, as well as Gerardo Guzmàn, ancient Greek professor at the renowned Vivarium Novum Academy in Rome.
Taking place on Wednesday, January 11th, 2023 at NOON EST:

I taught my kids Latin and Ancient Greek all through homeschooling and it has helped them immensely. The oldest is 27 and the youngest is 19. They tell me almost daily how knowing these languages has helped them in surprising ways with things that are seemingly unrelated.
Excelente idea!Como poderemos estudiar idiomas como portugues, frances, espanol , se no conocemos sus origenes?Solamente estudiando griego antiguo y latim y que vamos tener conocimiento filologico dos idiomas dito neo-latinos.. e romances... Estimular la juvenbtud es el primero paso para hacerlos entender a importancia do griego y del latim.
