Schedule


First Half: Weeks 1 - 6

Part 1 will take you through the first 6 weeks of the Workshop, in which we’ll be using Keller and Russell to acquire a mastery of Latin grammar. Your task each day will be to watch a pre-recorded lecture taking you through the material, and to attend at least 2-3 hours of synchronous classes via Zoom. One of these will be with the Director, in which you will have an opportunity to ask questions about the material covered in the lecture. The other will be with one of the two other instructors, and the aim of that session will be to consolidate your understanding of the new material and practise translating. The Director and the two other instructors will also be holding daily office hours to ensure that everyone’s individual needs can be addressed.

 

Second Half: Weeks 7 - 10

Part 2 (in the remaining 4 weeks of the Workshop) will be where you choose to read two texts (one verse and one prose; specific texts to be confirmed) with either the Director or the third instructor. This is in many ways the most rewarding part of the Workshop as you’ll be putting into practice everything you’ve been learning up to this point. There will be at least 2-3 hours of synchronous classes per day, and your main task in preparation for these will be to read parts of the texts we’ll be looking at and coming to the sessions ready to discuss them.
