The difficulties of Ancient Greek do not only depend on its grammar and alphabet, but also on other factors. Let's see what the main ones are below. Teaching method: sometimes the teaching method of many teachers at school may not very inclusive and it’s perhaps too rigid. However, professors have to follow the program and keep up with several classes, so it is normal for them to establish their own teaching method in order to work. The fact is that ancient Greek is often taught almost as if it were a language to be learned, when in fact it is a method for understanding ancient texts. Low motivation: Ancient Greek is a 'dead language', so many students feel demotivated to study it. The new generations, influenced by the speed and convenience of the web, do not want to waste time studying a language that actually has no use in everyday life. Hence a lack of interest and motivation, accentuated by the difficulties of studying. However, one must consider that learning ancient Greek can be useful, as it helps with reasoning and provides a broad background on many Italian and other language terms. Lack of help: sometimes, in order to get good grades in a subject to which one feels poorly suited, one needs outside help. Individual study is important, but many students feel left to their own devices once the class lesson is over. As a result, they fail to study at home and close their books at the first obstacle.
