Latin Instruction

Latin Lives at Ivy Hall!

The International Institute for Culture is pleased to offer evening Latin courses in the Winter of 2020.

On Tuesday evenings, an Advanced Latin reading course meets from 7:00 to 9:00 p.m. in the Ivy Hall library.
The current text for translation is the Rule of St. Benedict. Future readings will feature the poetry of Horace, Catullus, and Ovid. The cost of the course is $350 for ten lessons. The advanced reading group resumes Tuesday, January 14th.

On Thursday evenings, an Introductory Latin class will meet from 7:00-9:00 p.m. in the Ivy Hall library.
This course teaches classical Latin grammar with the ecclesiastical or “mediaeval” pronunciation. It covers the basic features of Latin as an inflected language, with opportunities for speaking the language, reading simple stories, and learning the basic prayers of the Church and the parts of the Mass in the Roman Rite. This course is an excellent opportunity for any adult learner wanting to be more fully connected with our cultural heritage and to understand better both our past and our present. The required texts and additional electronic or photocopied texts will be provided. The cost for this course is $350 for ten lessons. The Introductory Latin class begins Thursday, January 16th.
