Montessori Quote of the Day

Quote for 2 November 2021

Imagine how difficult it is to learn one of the classical languages, such as Latin or Sanskrit. What a lot of work it requires – students study Latin for six or seven years and, at the end, cannot speak it. Yet in Roman times every child that played in the streets spoke Latin, using all the correct declensions of the nouns and conjugations of the verbs.
