Hello Everybody! I haven’t been quite that active for a while mostly due the reason mentioned above :). So to get into the spirit of school reopening for everyone around the USA, here are some school-related words.

lycee- A lycee is a state maintained secondary school especially in France. This word does come from the Lyceum. Interestingly, the original lyceum was taught by Aristotle.

turnhalle- This word comes from German and means a school for gymnastics. Quite literally it means a hall for turning (gymastics).

archididascalos- Archididascalos is flaunting its Greek heritage with many traditionally Greek letter combinations present. “Archi”, a root meaning the highest, shows up in the word’s definition of “the chief teacher.”

calmecac- Going almost halfway around the world from the previous word, calmecac comes from Nahuatl and is a school for the sons of Aztec nobles preparing them to be chiefs and priests.

manege- A manege is a school for teaching horsemanship and comes from French.
