Ninety per cent of all Greek texts of Antiquity have been written in Koine Greek. This dialect is the language of a vast array of classical texts ranging from the fields of philosophy and medicine to poetry and novels, and it is the original language of the New Testament, that of the Septuagint and of many ancient Jewish and Christian texts. As many of today’s physical and social sciences originated with ancient Greeks and their fascinating treatises on a myriad of topics, knowledge of this language is the key to understanding the birth of Western culture.

 

The course at Polis is intended to familiarize students with the language through natural learning methods. From the first day, all lessons are conducted in ancient Greek using techniques based on the way in which children acquire their mother tongue, allowing the students to develop a keen intuition in understanding and speaking the language. The course is designed to provide speaking skills that, with physical practice, will allow the student to connect with the language and store new information in long-term memory, and reading skills that will allow the student to approach original texts without the reliance on or reference to translations.  Finally, the written exercises will enable students to perfect their mastery of this ancient but lively and beautiful language.

 

The Polis Method was developed using the latest insights on language acquisition. The textbook was written especially for this method and employs such techniques as Total Physical Response and Story Telling. The method is interactive and invites the students to constantly improve in their fluency in the language.

 

The experience of students in the program have proven the success of the method and its promise for the future of classical education.
