Ολοκληρώθηκαν με επιτυχία οι εξετάσεις Πιστοποίησης της Ελλημομάθειας του ΚΕΓ (13-16/10/20)

Ανακοινώνεται από το Κέντρο Ελληνικής Γλώσσας ότι οι ετήσιες κατά μήνα Μάιο Εξετάσεις Ελληνομάθειας, που φέτος αναβλήθηκαν λόγω της πανδημίας του κορονοϊού, διεξήχθησαν κανονικά, από 13 έως 16 Οκτωβρίου, μέσα από τα 120 πιστοποιημένα Εξεταστικά Κέντρα του ΚΕΓ τόσο στην Ελλάδα όσο και σε όλη την υφήλιο. Παρά τις αναμενόμενες δυσκολίες, η συμμετοχή υποψηφίων, ομογενών και μη, υπήρξε και πάλι αξιόλογη. Οι Εξετάσεις Ελληνομάθειας για την πιστοποίηση της γνώσης της Ελληνικής ως Β’/ Ξένης Γλώσσας είναι ένας σταθερός και αδιάβλητος θεσμός της ελληνικής πολιτείας που, λειτουργεί από το 1999. Κάθε χρόνο, προσελκύει πάνω από 5500 υποψηφίους όλων των ηλικιών, πιστοποιεί το γνωστικό τους επίπεδο σύμφωνα με τα καθιερωμένα μέτρα και σταθμά που ισχύουν για όλες τις γλώσσες της Ευρωπαϊκής Ένωσης (Κοινό Ευρωπαϊκό Πλαίσιο Αναφοράς για τις Γλώσσες) και χορηγεί τίτλους εξαργυρώσιμους στην αγορά εργασίας εντός και εκτός της επικράτειας. Να σημειωθεί ότι η επιτυχία στις εξετάσεις αυτές είναι ανεξάρτητη από τον τρόπο και τη μέθοδο απόκτησης των γνώσεων, από τον τύπο σχολείου όπου εφοίτησε κανείς και για πόσο χρόνο. Η ιστοσελίδα της Πιστοποίησης της Ελληνομάθειας (www.greek-language.gr/certification) παρέχει όλες τις πληροφορίες για τις εξετάσεις αυτές μαζί με αφθονία αξιόπιστων ψηφιακών πόρων για την ετοιμασία των υποψηφίων.

A Farewell Message from Pompeiiana Newsletter, Then and Now

It is not without some sadness that the Pompeiiana Newsletter blog project comes to a close. I have, for the better part of the past 13 months, posted five issues per week of Dr. Bernard Barcio's labor of love, his Pompeiiana Newsletter, which ran from 1974 until the end of the 2002-2003 school year. It is my hope that Latin teachers, students, and enthusiasts, will continue to return to this

Latinum has moved!



Due to the recent struggles with MyPodcast, our own Molendinarius has moved his Latinum site to http://latinum.org.uk.  This change has been reflected in our links section as well.  Please check this out, it's a very useful site.


Remember, if you have something that you would like to share with the members here, please send me a message and you can be a "guest" poster.

Latinum Institute Website Update

The Latinum Institutehas rebuilt its website, making it far easier for students to find the materials in our ever growing catalogue.Latinum started as a podcast in 2006, and over the period 2006 to 2008, the Adler Latin Language structured immersion course was developed and produced.This is a complete Latin course, and has over 190 hours of Latin tuition in audio. Student difficulties have been addressed and at every stage, and whenever an issue was unclear, the section was re-recorded to address the problem, and re-issued. The end result is a comprehensive Latin audio course that can be used by all students, even those who think that a difficult language like Latin cannot be studied alone. The Latin Institute's unique structured programme makes Latin self study possible and achievable.The best way to learn Latin is by using an audio course. You will learn Latin grammar, but most of the actual learning will…See More
