THE STRUCTURAL APPROACH TO THE TEACHING OF LATIN
AbstractRemnants of Latine! For centuries in Western Europe a knowledge of Latin (and, where possible, of Classical Greek), provided the principal access to a study of man's cultural achievements. It could be assumed that a training in Latin was part of the baggage of an educated man. Today, with the explosion of knowledge and the consequent demanda on a student's period of formaI training, the outlay of time and effort in any particultar field must be carefully balanced against the rewards of such concentration. The ready availability of information in any one of a number of modern languages and the staggering development of communications media have deprived Latin of its unique position. As a result, the study of Latin now occupies a somewhat different niche in the hierarchy of educational values.
