The full-time week-long residential course (May 22-27, 2017) is intended to lay a good foundation for students eager to read Latin literature. From the first day participants will be immersed in Latin through listening, speaking, reading, and writing. They will study the engaging narrative of Hans Ørberg’s Lingua Latina, memorize Latin creeds and hymns, and enjoy conversations, games, and outdoor activities, all which will help them learn and internalize Latin grammar, syntax, and vocabulary, as well as whet their appetite for further study.
The course is intended primarily for beginners who have no previous experience with Latin. Those who know some Latin grammar but who desire to develop their reading ability are also welcome to enroll, as are Latin teachers who want to begin using active Latin in their classrooms. The instructor, Michael Spangler, is an experienced Latin teacher and speaker. He is pursuing pastoral ministry and doctoral study in the Latin poetry of Theodore Beza.
