An informal group for Years 12/13
What is it?
Classics involves the study of ancient Greek and Latin literature, philosophy and history. These things have influenced our society for many years and continue to do so today: Seen The Simpsons’ Odyssey? Played the God of War games? Know what ad lib, alter ego, major and etcetera mean? Then you are a bona fide Latin speaker [in a small way].
Why do it?
It is really interesting, helps lots of culture and language fall into place, and also top universities love people who have an understanding of classics.
