So last week, I posted in Ancient Greek. Some people were slightly confused, so here goes a translation!
I’ve mentioned before that I learn to read, recognize and speak Ancient Greek. But, you may ask me, why do I want to learn it if it takes so much time and dificulty? I want to be a professor and a scholar, since I love to learn, know and teach. If I want to be good at it, I need to know ancient languages, since I love philosophy and religion. The major writings of much of philosophy and religion are not in English, but in Ancient Greek and other ancient languages. Also, I get really excited about being able to read the works of Homer and philosophers and the followers of Jesus and other works in Ancient Greek. And if I learn Ancient Greek, it will help me to learn other ancient languages, like those of India. Essentially, I learn Ancient Greek because I love the ancient world.
Hope that clears a few things up. The translation is a little rough, but that’s pretty typical when you go from an ancient language to a modern one. Let me know if you have any questions!
