Intermediate-Advanced Conversational Latin: Neo-Latin Colloquia
Tues. 4pm Eastern
Course Description: Colloquia are treasure-houses of excellent Latin idioms, unusual situations, and snarky wit. In this course we’ll read selections from various authors, including Corderius, Erasmus, and Schottennius, in order to enjoy their humor and steal their expressions to use in Latn conversation. Are you interested in a ghost-exorcism hoax or which countries have the best inns? What about why scholae are called ludi, how to choose a good teacher, or whether there’s a secret 14-day shortcut for language learning?
Level: This course is intended for those who have experience speaking Latin and reading extended passages at sight.
Textbook: Instructor will provide materials.
