  • Why take Latin? Isn't it a dead language?

    "When it comes to Latin, we don't aim to speak with the living, we aim to learn from those that aren't around to listen to us anymore. Those writers were both familiar and unfamiliar in their thinking and show an ancient society which is both familiar and unfamiliar. How people lived and thought back then teaches us what humanity has been and invites comparison with the present. Shakespeare, Mozart and Van Gogh are all dead, yet we still study their works. Latin's not a dead language. It's the key to a room with one of the clearest mirrors in existence." 
    - Koen Vandecruys
