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 'Learn to Read Latin' by Keller and Russell to acquire a mastery of Latin grammar. Your task each day will be to read the relevant textbook entries and watch a pre-recorded lecture which will help guide you through the material, and to attend 1 hour 30 minutes of synchronous classes via Zoom. These synchronous classes will be with one of the two Part 1 instructors, and the aim of that session will be to consolidate your understanding of the new material and practise translating. The Director and the Part 1 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 Part 2 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. As with Part 1, there will be 1 hour 30 minutes 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.
