Classics Classroom

Active Classical Languages Club


Mission

The mission of the Active Classical Languages Club is to provide students with an opportunity to internalize the Latin and Greek through practicing speaking, hearing, writing, and reciting.

About

Only in modern times has Latin been taught as a dead language. We, rather, subscribe to the Renaissance tradition of Latin education which has equipped some of the best Latinists the world has ever seen. This method teaches students to internalize the language. By participating in the club, students should be able to enter into the linguistic mindset of an ancient Roman or Greek and understand ancient works quickly by sight, without having to think in another language.

Our goal is that Students, by participating in the club, should be able to enter into the linguistic mindset of an ancient Roman or Greek and understand ancient works quickly by sight, without having to think in another language.

We meet once a week for dinner. Our club emphasizes Active (Spoken) Latin over Active Ancient Greek. Please check with club representative for further information of available programs.

Membership

Membership is open to all students who seriously want to learn Latin and Ancient Greek.
