Democratizing Access to Latin and the Classics
Why "Latin for All"?
Latin, and Classics as a whole, has traditionally been reserved for the elite. Access to learning Classical languages is still not widespread across the United States and many other parts of the world.
Our goal is to bring Classics into the 21st century by reimagining accessibility and democratizing learning for all.
