Greek (Ancient)

Since the Renaissance’s revival of Ancient Greek philosophy and literature, the works of Homer, Plato, and Aristotle have established themselves as Western canon that is still taught today. Prevalent in more than just the arts, Ancient Greek – which was spoken primarily from the 9th century to the 4th century BCE – was also the language from which revolutionary breakthroughs in science, math and architecture were first developed. An impressive culture indeed!
