Calder Classics

Reading Latin
Introduction to Latin
Intermediate Latin
Introduction to Ancient Greek
Creative Writing

For summer 2021 Calder Classics has added a full suite of online courses. Programs are offered to high school students seeking to improve their Latin, Ancient Greek, and/or Classics-inspired creative writing. Through an interdisciplinary approach including art, architecture, history, and mythology our students deepen their understanding of ancient and modern literature and culture, and develop a lifelong appreciation of the Classics. Our approach to teaching includes an investigation into how and why the Classics have endured and woven themselves so deeply into our modern lives. We explore the original stories from multiple angles, along with later adaptations and interpretations, some direct and others divergent. During the last 10 years students have joined us from over 125 public and private high schools in North America, South America and Asia and have gone on to attend 65 top colleges and universities. We expect to return to Italy in the spring and summer of 2022.

Summer School in Homer 2019, UCL
Monday 22nd July to Friday 26th July 2019

The Summer School offers five days of intensive teaching of Homeric language and literature. There will be four language classes each day as well as lectures, between 10.30 and 16.30. The course is not residential.

Teaching will be generally in groups of 15-20 people which, as far as possible, comprise students of roughly the same level of experience (beginners, intermediate or advanced). The style of teaching is friendly, but demanding: a lot of work is expected from students during the School, but they should find the whole experience both stimulating and valuable. Some classes concentrate chiefly on reading texts, while others offer a mixture of grammar and translation practice. Our tutors include some of the most experienced and talented teachers of Classics in the London area and beyond.


Pontifical University of the Holy Cross - Rome

Living Latin
Living Ancient Greek
Living Biblical Hebrew
Methodological seminar for teachers

The courses are given at the Pontifical University of the Holy Cross (Rome), in collaboration with the Polis Institute of Languages and Humanities (Jerusalem). 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 methodological seminar is offered to ancient language professors who want to learn teaching by the Polis method.
