Beginners Latin for Pleasure

Latin is a unique gateway both to the rich culture of the Classical world and to a deeper understanding of this country’s heritage and language.  It is a fascinating experience to be able to read the words of authors from two thousand years ago in the original Latin and to learn more of the myths, history, battles and love affairs of the Ancient Romans.

This class assumes no previous knowledge of Latin and will focus on learning to read plays, stories and historical accounts in Latin.

We shall follow the well-established “Reading Latin” course, by Jones and Sidwell, specially designed for adult beginners.

You will need to buy copies of the Reading Latin Text and Grammar (both together around £20 second-hand on Amazon) and to bring writing materials.

Dr Clare Harvey currently teaches Latin and Classical Civilisation at Watford Grammar School for Boys, has had articles published in the Journal of Classics Teaching and is a member of the Roman Society Schools Committee
