The name Komensky is derived from Jan Amos Komensky [ko-man-skee] aka Comenius (latinized form).
Jan Amos Komensky was a Moravian bishop (1592-1670). He was known as the “Teacher of the Nations” and was one of the first to insist that children should learn in their mother tongue. Most of the teaching of his time went on in Latin through memorization.
He insisted that one must understand to learn and that learning was a deeply human and enjoyable activity.
Komensky has been described as ‘a genius, possibly the only one that the history of language teaching can claim’ [A.P.R. Howatt].
He suffered much from persecution and lived most of his life outside his own country and died in the Netherlands. He was a true cosmopolitan who believed that it was possible and necessary to live together peacefully – no matter what cultural, ethnic, or religious background.
Other facts about Komensky: He was asked to be the first President of Harvard College and declined; the first to use pictures in a textbook; the first to promote continuing education and to advocate equal education for all, including women and the poor. (Source: Comenius Foundation)
In his spirit we would like to work and continue to build a better world.
