Pierian Spring Group (PSG) is a partnership of language enthusiasts created for the purpose of sharing our passion – multilingual communication. The name Pierian Spring is a reference to a spring in Greek mythology that is said to be the source of knowledge and inspiration for the Muses – the goddesses of literature, science and the arts. Eighteenth century poet Alexander Pope authored, “A little learning is a dangerous thing; Drink deep or taste not the Pierian Spring”.
