Vukašin Miljković is a PhD student in Classical Philology at the University of Belgrade, Serbia. His dissertation has the aim of exploring fundamental ideas about the Greek language and Greek language teaching among the Greek Atticists of the Age of Enlightenment. A proponent of the active study methods of Latin and Ancient Greek, he spent a year at the Accademia Vivarium Novum where he consolidated his knowledge of spoken Latin and Ancient Greek, as well as at the University of Ioannina, Greece, where he attained high proficiency in Modern Greek as well. Vukašin also took part in an exchange program organized by the US Department of State which enabled him to spend a year at the University of Texas at Austin, studying the classical languages as well as Sanskrit. His teaching experience includes high-school level and university level courses in Greek and Latin, both in classroom and online, summer school intensive courses, as well as conventional language courses. Currently he is also working on a Septuagint translation project at his home university.
