  1. There were a few classes when I was at Paris IV that were taught exclusively in Latin. We didn’t speak Latin outside of class, however.

  2. Seems like one of those novel, but not actually very practical/useful things. I mean some knowledge of these languages is useful in a few fields such as medicine but actually just speaking it exclusively seems a bit silly and lots of meaning/nuance when trying to teach things to students will probably be lost. But hey, good for them if everyone’s happy with it

  3. Unless things have changed since the internet’s most recent blogposts five years ago, women are not accepted as students except for their summer programs.
