Pontifical University of the Holy Cross - Rome

Intensive Latin course: Level I, II, III and IV
Intensive course in Koine Greek: Level I, II and III
Intensive course in Biblical Hebrew: Level I and II
Methological seminar for ancient language professors

The courses are given at the Pontifical University of the Holy Cross (Rome), in collaboration with the Polis Institute of Languages and Humanities. The courses are taught following the Polis method. According to that method, Koine Greek is taught in Koine Greek, Latin in Latin and Biblical Hebrew in Biblical Hebrew, as living languages.

The first lessons are based upon the TPR (Total Physical Response) method, which allows the student to be actively involved in the class. Besides, through the TPR Storytelling technique the student assimilates the vocabulary in a natural way and starts speaking the ancient language right from the very beginning. Polis is so far the only institute in the world where one can learn these three languages (Latin, Ancient Greek and Biblical Hebrew) as living ones.

A methodogical seminar is offered to ancient language professors who want to learn teching by the Polis method.
