A British school ( St. James Independent School ) makes Sanskrit compulsory
In the heart of London, a British school has made Sanskrit compulsory subject for its junior division because it
helps students grasp maths, science and other languages better. Warwick Jessup, head of Sanskrit department, says: “This is the most perfect and logical language in the world, the only one that is not named after the people who speak it.
Indeed the word itself means perfected language.” Paul Moss, headmaster of the
school, says: “The Devnagri script and spoken Sanskrit are two of the best ways for a child to overcome stiffness of fingers and the tongue. Today’s European languages do not use many parts of the tongue and mouth while speaking or many finger movements while writing, whereas Sanskrit helps immensely to develop cerebral dexterity through its phonetics.”.
And at its junior school, students must learn Sanskrit as a second language for six years. The school’s meals also are fully vegetarian.
