Latin Course for Teens

Want to learn Latin? Latin is not a dead language – and, with a little effort, you can learn to read it. For ages 13-18.

About the Course

This is a rigorous course in classical Latin for committed teens taught by Dr. Gregory Rowe (UVic).

By year’s end you will be able to read poems by Catullus, the medieval Bayeux Tapestry, and the Latin translations of Dr. Seuss and Harry Potter.

The course runs from September to April, and you have to start at the beginning, in September!

Course Supplies

The course is free but a text book is required.
