HOW DO YOU LEARN A LANGUAGE?

In the Renaissance epoch Latin was studied just as modern languages are done today. At first the student learnt to speak and think entirely in Latin with the aid of dialogues his tutor prepared beforehand to achieve the ultimate goal. Thus the student became familiar with the use of the vocabulary of the language and in a relatively short time the pupil was able to converse and understand simple texts without resorting to grammatical structures.


With this natural and direct method men and women from the Renaissance period were capable of maneuvering Latin with all the craft and skill at their command very similar to the students of today who study modern languages. The learners attained a high level so that on entering  university they were capable of following the classics related to any discipline in Latin and could express themselves in writing in the same language.

Lingua Latina per se Illustrata will be used although we can also utilize other manuals based on natural methods such as Ecce Romani or the Latin courses from Oxford and Cambridge.
In our classes we will mainly focus on the use of the language giving priority to building up vocabulary and speaking the language fluently. Grammar is assimilated through conversation in the same way as in the process of the learning of modern languages.
Moreover, we will also provide materials that we ourselves have developed such as audio recordings, lessons on video and exercise books.
