Ancient Greek

The ancient Greeks invented drama, history, philosophy, medicine, and democracy. Studying Greek aids in the reading and understanding of basic works in ancient Greek literature and mythology. In addition to improving English vocabulary, spelling, and knowledge of medical and scientific terminology, studying ancient Greek cultivates the ability to read closely and astutely, think logically, and express oneself precisely and lucidly, valuable skills that every employer wants. The study of Greek also correlates with improved scores on such standardized tests as the MCAT, LSAT, GMAT, and GRE.
