Rōma Aeterna (Intemediate Latin Conversation)

Tues., 7pm (U.S. Eastern Time)

Course Description: Have you completed Familia Romana and are you ready to move on to the second volume of Ørberg’s textbook? Or are you interested in discussing the writings of Sallust, Ovid, Livy, or Aulus Gellius in order to improve your competence in reading and speaking Latin? Ørberg's Rōma Aeterna offers a great selection of readings organized by degrees of difficulty that can help us achieve these goals. We will proceed from earlier and easier to later and more challenging texts of the participants’ interest. The instructor will suggest (but not require) some written exercises from the Exercitia workbook, or other sources, that will help develop both skills. The instructor will give feedback and open discussion on these or any other topics related to teaching Latin with Ørberg’s methodology or through the ‘natural’ method.


Level: This approach is particularly effective for students who have a good foundation in Latin grammar but are relatively new to active/spoken Latin and want to improve quickly. 

Textbook: Ørberg's Rōma Aeterna and the Exercitia workbook.

Sections capped at: 5 students. If the course is sold-out, please fill out this waiting-list form.
