We invite you to the following courses that will take place in the Vivarium novum Academy:

A. Summer full-immersion Latin course: two months to learn a two-thousand year old language (June 24-August 18). The course is divided into three levels:

Latin I (for beginners; from June 24 to July 21; 10 ECTS): This module will cover the entirety of the Latin grammar and over 1800 of the most frequent words in the language. The constant use of Latin, in and outside the classroom, will allow the students to assimilate in a quick and efficient manner the grammar and vocabulary.

Latin II (For intermediate students; from July 22 to August 18; 10 ECTS): In this module students will achieve fluency in reading the works of classical authors. They will be lead to this goal through the careful study of the style of Virgil, Titus Livius, Cicero, and many others. To participate directly on this module students are required to have already a firm grasp of Latin grammar and vocabulary.

Latin III (For andvanced students; two modules of two weeks: from July 22 to August 4, and from August 5 to 18; 2x5 ECTS): This module has been created for students that have already participated in modules I and II, in previous years, or that have already obtained a high level of proficiency in Latin. It consists of seminars, on which authors of different periods are read and their works and ideas are discussed, this in order to understand their importance in the shaping of western culture.
