Logophilia Winter Programme 2019
December 26, 2019 @ 8:00 am - January 17, 2020 @ 5:00 pm
1The Fundamental Etymology Workshop (FEW) is Logophilia’s flagship workshop. FEW brings together a rich and diverse thematic arrangement of Latin and Greek roots in English.
We educate students on the etymological roots of words in English, categorised under :
(1) The Natural Sciences
(2) The Social Sciences
(3) Language & Literature
- Methodology : Seminars
- Duration: 10 days (20 hours)
- Advantage : Students gain a vital insight into basic vocabularies of various disciplines.
This provides an essential sophistication to their learning styles, and Etymology Education rapidly replaces rote memorisation.
2Words are not made by linguists. Words were made by people. The Logophilia Wordsmithery Programme helps students understand the process of word formation in English. These students gain a high degree of ‘dictionary independence’ and get into the habit of making words, or “Wordsmithery”.
Logophilia Wordsmithery is an Etymology-based English Vocabulary Workshop. Students are trained in the processes of word-formation in English. Word affixes are powerful carriers of words: affixes are often involved in the formation of several thousand words.
Once a student learns an affix:
- a gateway opens up to all words that are derived from them;
- he gets a rich understanding the part-of-speech and function of the word
- an intuitive word-deciphering ability develops
3The Logophilia Public Speaking Programme was established in 2002, by Dhruv Raj Sharma. The Logophilia Public Speaking Programme is a multi-level public speaking programme structured through powerful introspection activities, which purports to empower students in the art of self-expression. The Logophilia Public Speaking Programme comes in 3 levels – Basic, Advanced, & Professional. All participants must begin at Level 1.
The Logophilia Public Speaking Programme raises the essential question of what is the point in studying so hard if one does not know how to express it. Human individuals, for a variety of reasons, find themselves at a loss for words, confidence, and ability when it comes to expressing themselves in front of others. These deficiencies tend to often be rooted in authoritarian enculturation practices (overstrict parenting, or schooling), which renders children to grow up feeling like intruding aliens in an adult world. Consequently, these individuals tend to develop a strong diffidence, which lingers on to corrode their abilities even much later into their adulthood. At the Logophilia Public Speaking Programme we get these students to practice removing these hesitations and to express themselves without the doubt of impending criticism.
