Latin for beginners and post-beginners

Our Summer Schools offer the opportunity to learn Latin or New Testament Greek with our excellent tutors over the course of one or two weeks. These courses are suitable for all, and allow students to explore the language and begin to read important texts as they were originally written.

Anyone is welcome to join these summer schools, whether they are students wanting to go on to study courses such as Classics, Theology or Medieval Studies, or just interested adults looking to do something new and enjoyable over the summer!

Week 2 (post-beginners):  Monday 5 August - Friday 9 August

You are welcome to take both or either week.
