On the occasion of the Alumni Homecoming-Days on the 17th of October 2019, the Bereich Gräzistik/Latinistik of the Institut für Sprachen und Literaturen organized a round-table discussion about the teaching of Latin across Europe.
In a completely full archeological museum of Innsbruck University, current, former, and affiliated members of the LBI represented Poland, Italy, Germany and Belgium. Dr Simon Zuenelli and Mag. Irina Tautschnig introduced the participants and moderated presentations of the organization of teaching classics, and its actualization for modern times in the respective countries. Samples of exercise and text books were shown and explained how language acquisition and reading of original texts is conducted in classrooms. Finally, the discussion was followed by questions from the interested public. The conversation continued over a nice buffet with drinks.
