Pontifical University of the Holy Cross - Rome

Latin
Koiné Greek
Biblical Hebrew
Methodological seminar for ancient languages professors

The courses are given at the Pontifical University of the Holy Cross (Rome), in collaboration with the Polis Institute of Languages and Humanities (Jerusalem). 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 teaching by the Polis method.

Study classical Syriac, Biblical Hebrew, or Koine Greek in with Polis - The Jerusalem Institute of Languages and Humanities! The institute was established by a group of academics with the shared goal of promoting the learning of ancient and Semitic languages. The founders believe that the best way to understand an ancient or modern text or culture is to become immersed in the language, through listening, speaking, writing, and reading. The Polis Method, which is applied in all language courses, is made up of pedagogical methodologies that mimic the ways in which children are taught their mother tongue.

Using methods such as Total Physical Response and Storytelling, students are constantly involved in the learning process, and are completely immersed in the target language from the first day. This method allows for ancient languages to come alive and be used as a living language. It also creates an environment where students from all over the world can study together and communicate with one another. Students at Polis find a welcoming, warm environment, where they can learn a new language and improve their skills while learning about the cultures and people of Jerusalem and meet people from all over the world.
