Latin in the Secondary School Humanitarian Cycle

2006. No. 4. P. 192–199 [issue contents]
The European educational tradition preserves to this day the classical grammar school, with its tuition of Latin and Greek, as an incubator of the political elite. Ancient language classes develop a taste for research and creativity, thus forming a large social group of intellectuals and guaranteeing its viability. Latin has come back to Russian secondary school, and is major success. It is to be regarded as an instrument to attain linguistic and extra-linguistic goals-make students discover for themselves European cultural values, with the focus on the Antiquity as the basis of later global progress.
