Summer School in Homer 2019, UCL
Monday 22nd July to Friday 26th July 2019

The Summer School offers five days of intensive teaching of Homeric language and literature. There will be four language classes each day as well as lectures, between 10.30 and 16.30. The course is not residential.

Teaching will be generally in groups of 15-20 people which, as far as possible, comprise students of roughly the same level of experience (beginners, intermediate or advanced). The style of teaching is friendly, but demanding: a lot of work is expected from students during the School, but they should find the whole experience both stimulating and valuable. Some classes concentrate chiefly on reading texts, while others offer a mixture of grammar and translation practice. Our tutors include some of the most experienced and talented teachers of Classics in the London area and beyond.

Pontifical University of the Holy Cross - Rome

Living Latin
Living Ancient Greek
Living Biblical Hebrew
Methodological seminar for teachers

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 methodological 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.
