Languages

 

We explore and play with different languages to know more about our own.

 
 

The ability to communicate through speech is a characteristic that defines us as human beings. Words help us communicate with mesmerizing beauty and complexity. Humans have created hundreds of different ways to communicate through words, and it is astonishing that so many different languages can account for a single species. Our innate ability to learn and use languages is certainly undeniable, and we strongly believe that our fantastic linguistic potential needs to be exploited, nurtured and encouraged.
 
The Communicate Project CIC aims to work with as many different languages as possible, but focuses particularly on Ancient Languages and Spanish.

 
 

Why Ancient Languages?

 

We can always learn from the past in order to make a better future. Roman and Greek culture lay at the base of Western civilization. Studying their languages and culture helps us not only to understand our own societies but also to being more open to others’. By understanding the structure of their languages and reflecting on them, we can also understand the way in which other languages, including our own, are built, and ultimately the way in which we think and structure our thought. Throughout time human beings have managed to translate thought into words and words into symbols, creating varied, complex and magnificent writing systems.

Why Spanish?

 

Spanish is, today, the second more international language in the world. It is spoken not only in Spain but in most of Latin-America and the Caribbean and in growing parts of the United States. Its relation to Latin and the other Romance languages makes it a great door to learning other languages such as Italian, French, Portuguese and Romanian. Being one of Latin’s daughter languages, it is also a brilliant way to access the study of ancient languages.
