Latin

The Latin Group was introduced to allow members who had studied Latin previously to renew their acquaintance with this wonderful language. To get the most out of our meetings some previous learning of the language is needed.  

The Group meets every other Friday afternoon at the Group Leader's home.   Meetings begin with about 40 minutes revision of Latin grammar or syntax - an important regular component of our meetings. The textbook we use is So You Really Want to Learn Latin.  

The rest of the meeting is devoted to translating from Latin. Our reading has been quite wide, including Catullus, Livy, Apuleius, Caesar, Livy, Horace, Magna Carta, Bede the Vulgate - even the proceedings of the EEC in Latin.

Studying Latin is now the new trend! For more information email: Bromley U3A
