Latin - there are 2 groups

Latin Reading Group

Week 1, Wednesday, 10am – 12.00

Venue: Baltonsborough Church Room

Leader: Jennifer Westcott   

Tel:01458 850054      Email:jennifermmsing@yahoo.co.uk

This group is for those who have a good knowledge of Latin and would enjoy reading some of the classic texts unadapted. For this reason it is not suitable for those who are in the early stages of learning Latin. However, guidance is given where needed and there is plenty of time to examine knotty grammar points and the finer points of translation. I would very much welcome new members. 

Please contact me on 01458 850054 if you would like to discuss whether it would be for you or not.

Latin A 

Week 1, Wednesday, 2pm – 4pm

Venue: Private home – contact Pat for details

Leader: Pat Thompson   Tel:01749 890213    

We will be starting Book II (Eruption of Vesuvius, everybody dies) so if you were thinking of joining us it would be a good idea if you had done at least a year of Latin at school. Some revision recently would also be a good idea!

We are not rushing and we do also take time to consider geography, aspects of Roman life, and the spelling, usage and derivation of English words from Latin.
