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 their 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?
Watch an elite panel of ancient Greek and Latin teachers discuss how can we instill an interest in the youth today, so we can help preserve our collective history for tomorrow.
