Description

Class Experience

The goal of this class is to pique the interest of young learners in world languages. This is an introductory class to both history and foreign language. My hope is to inspire students to ask questions about history and culture. Specifically, they should leave class with an ability to explain how at least 5 of our English letters of the alphabet evolved from within cultures that were very different from our own. 
There is no assigned homework, though practice with the letters outside of classtime will inevitably lead to a richer experience of connecting the linguistic "dots" between The Phoenician, Hebrew, and Greek with English.  All work is group work.
3 hours per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
