Join us online for this two-day course where you will get an introduction to the Classical Latin language.

We will explore the cultural context of Latin alongside practical language learning, and by the end of the weekend you will be translating Latin texts into English.

By exploring the Latin alphabet and the principles of sentence construction alongside vocabulary, grammar and syntax, you will develop an understanding of Latin that will also deepen your understanding of the English language. Through close reading, transliteration and translation, and group work, you will gain a foundational understanding of this ancient language.

This course takes place on Zoom and we will email you a joining link the day before. There will be opportunities to interact and ask questions with your tutor Antony and other participants during breakout sessions.
