Pontifical University of the Holy Cross - Rome

Intensive Latin course: Level I, II, III and IV
Intensive course in Koine Greek: Level I, II and III
Intensive course in Biblical Hebrew: Level I and II
Methological seminar for ancient language professors

The courses are given at the Pontifical University of the Holy Cross (Rome), in collaboration with the Polis Institute of Languages and Humanities. The courses are taught following the Polis method. According to that method, Koine Greek is taught in Koine Greek, Latin in Latin and Biblical Hebrew in Biblical Hebrew, as living languages.

The first lessons are based upon the TPR (Total Physical Response) method, which allows the student to be actively involved in the class. Besides, through the TPR Storytelling technique the student assimilates the vocabulary in a natural way and starts speaking the ancient language right from the very beginning. Polis is so far the only institute in the world where one can learn these three languages (Latin, Ancient Greek and Biblical Hebrew) as living ones.

A methodogical seminar is offered to ancient language professors who want to learn teching by the Polis method.

UVA Summer Latin Institute: Beginning and Intermediate Latin
Greek Mythology

In the summer of 2015 the Department of Classics at the University of Virginia will again offer Latin as one of the University's Summer Language Institutes. The Latin program, which will take place from June 15 through August 7, is an intensive course designed to cover two years of college-level Latin (12 UVa credit hours earned). Students who wish to acquire experience in reading Latin but do not require course credit may also choose a non-credit option. No previous knowledge of Latin is required for participation. The Summer Latin Institute is an excellent opportunity for motivated students to achieve rapid proficiency in Latin, but also serves as a wonderful review for the experienced.

Methods Course in the Teaching of Latin

This course will deal with the teaching of Latin at all levels. Issues of curriculum, textbooks, and methodology will be addressed along with practical matters of day-to-day classroom realities. We will examine traditional and current approaches to the teaching of grammar, reading and translation. National standards, testing, and resources for teachers will be explored. Students will have the opportunity to produce, critique, and share their own teaching materials.
August 2- August 13 9:00 am – 2:30 pm
