If you learn Latin, the primary key to at least the last 2,000 years of Western Civilization will be yours. Perhaps you’d like to learn Latin; I’d certainly like to teach you! My specialty is Church Latin: Ecclesiastical Latin, Medieval Latin.
It’s not quite Julius Caesar’s Latin–his Classical Latin is substantially different from what I teach–more here. But if the Latin of the glorious Age of Faith, of the Western intellectual tradition from about 400-1600, and of the Catholic Church even today is what you are interested in–well, this is what I do.
Is this for you: Studying with others, like in a high school or college Latin class of yesteryear, only using Zoom? I will be presenting material for a new lesson each week, live, throughout the duration of the course.
Are you curious about the different Latin curricula options available, and wonder what factors would make each most appropriate for you or your students? I’ll be happy to tell you what I know!
Would you like a more personalized approach to learning Church Latin, where I work with you personally to help you meet your goals? This is a custom-tailored path to studying and mastery, designed for your situation.
