Lessons combine the most recent acquisitions of language-teaching methodology with the teaching tradition of Renaissance humanistic schools.
From the very first lesson, courses will be held in Ancient Greek, and students will be invited to use this language in order to converse among themselves and with the professor. The vocabulary and structures employed are those of Attic Greek (5th century).
Courses are based on the inductive-contextual method and follow a program that allows the student to understand and comprehend each new word and grammatical rule in a direct and immediate way.

Educational objectives

Upon completion of studies, students will be able to read and comprehend any text in Ancient Greek without needing to consult a dictionary.
Consequently, students will acquire the ability to express themselves in Ancient Greek, and will be able to grasp even minute nuances of the language, thereby guaranteeing direct access to history’s greatest literary patrimony.
