LATIN IMMERSION TRIP TO ROME, ITALY.
March 10-17, 2024 (SOLD OUT)
Latin Immersion Trip to Rome (SOLD OUT)
Take your fluency to the next level in stunning surroundings on the outskirts of Rome, at the beautiful Palazzola Estate. By speaking, reading, writing and even singing in Latin, beginners will gain a firm grasp of foundational grammar and vocabulary, while intermediate and advanced students will consolidate their grammar and see a marked increase in fluency.
The all-inclusive price (£1,050; £995 for returning students) covers full board, lodging, tuition, educational materials, unlimited access to our knowledgeable, experienced teachers, agreed airport transfer, and one excursion to an archaeological site.
Classes will consist of a mix of language instruction, in groups organised by level of Latin fluency, and grammar sessions, reading groups, metrical instruction through the medium of songs, and optional games and drama, all in mixed groups to help students get to know each other. There will be time set aside for silent study, with teachers on hand to answer any questions. One day will be dedicated to an excursion to an archaeological site.
All ages welcome.
The course will be organised and run by the highly experienced Oxford Latinitas Latin teaching team.
Pre-course diagnostic: one of the team will have a short 1:1 call with each applicant to ensure that everyone is placed in the right group, and to answer any questions about the curriculum.
The best route to rapid language acquisition is full immersion, so we will encourage the use of Latin as the only language spoken for the duration of the course, including on the field trips.
I will be forever grateful to you for giving my daughter such an incredible experience in Italy. She has never been this happy, and the benefits will ripple long into her future... This adventure has made her fall in love with the Latin language and helped her confirm what she wants to do in life. All the teachers have taught and looked after the kids so amazingly well. Your care, organization and kindness were the best, more than I could have imagined.

As a beginner I got a lot more out of the course than I had been expecting. I liked my teacher and the way he explained things in Latin. The fact that the teachers (organisers) spoke in Latin to each other was very inspiring.

The teaching, together with language, setting, and people, made this an experience of a lifetime.

Now I can say I love Latin.

I will remember and cherish this experience for the rest of my life. Oxford Latinitas really went out of their way to teach us and make us feel comfortable the entire time.

This trip put a new face and energy into Latin, a subject I'd previously associated with stagnancy. Unforgettable experience.

Everything was perfect. The teachers were very passionate and knowledgeable and they sing like angels! The location was amazing, the excursion was very interesting and the group was great!

«Women-only seminar» with Dr. Melinda Letts not only increased my understanding of the ancient authors, but also gave me the opportunity to discuss a number of important subjects (love, grief, consolation, hatred, and so on) with other great women. I was thrilled to be a part of our little team, to immerse myself in Latin studies, and to make contact with such wonderful women. I want to return to Oxford Latinitas to study in the future!

It is a daunting thing to start speaking any new language, let alone Classical Greek - but the sessions quickly became one of the highlights of my week. It felt more like a catch-up with friends than anything else – and, in addition to being more enjoyable than grinding through a grammar book, improved my Greek miraculously!

After learning Latin on my own for about a year I was starting to struggle but Ayelet's own enthusiasm for the subject seems to be infectious. This course boosted my motivation and turned out to be just what I needed. I felt stretched at times, as we covered a lot of material that was new to me, but getting to the end of the book now seems much more achievable! I am very pleased with the course.

I loved the course and felt that my speaking confidence had really improved by the end of the two weeks! … Thank you once again for all your efforts teaching us!

I really liked the way Ivan taught us. The effort he made every time someone had a question so that we could fully understand was very helpful to us. He seems to love his job. The classes were very useful for me because I studied Latin for 2 years, but I didn't have the basics of the language, because I had missed it in the beginning and now I can say that I love Latin, because of the Summer Schools.

Jason was a patient and very helpful teacher. The course was perfect for me. I found every day's class challenging yet not overwhelming. The reading material provided was interesting and very useful.
Very engaging sessions, pitched at a challenging but accessible level; well-paced, very interesting selection of material; I learnt a great deal from Renatus' correction of errors and comments on the text, as well as the invaluable time spent on composition at the beginning of many of the lessons. Well organised and friendly; an excellent programme.
Aurelius was a great teacher, and thanks to him and his methods, I understood that ancient Greek grammar wasn't so difficult to learn. He explained with great clarity. … He's also very patient and he varied the sources so that we keep our motivation intact. lt was another great experience. I'm always amazed by OL teachers' proficiency. They're also very patient and encouraging.

The classes were excellent: rigorous, informative, and challenging. I very much enjoyed the classes, and learnt a great deal, but I found them very challenging. … But the difficulties were outweighed by the benefits of the lessons – I cannot believe how much Cicero I read in a fortnight!
Renatus showed extremely amiable as well as significantly demanding approach I surely enjoyed, engaging us in multiple philosophical and general conversations fully in Latin that were crucial for activating our grammar and vocabulary in speech to a higher extent. Moreover, I am eager to thank him specifically for his willingness to check, correct and improve our essays in order to clarify and amplify our writing skills.

Ayeleta is a great teacher and created a perfect productive atmosphere for the lessons. She was very supportive, she explained and repeated stuff as many times as it was necessary. This summer school was a wonderful time for learning. I enjoyed the programme and the style of the lessons. Of course, studying Latin in Latin is not that easy but it that was a great challenge. After that, you feel way more certain in your knowledge and start to understand the structure of a language way better.
Tetiana AkchurinaLatin Summer School (online), August 2021
I really enjoyed the class. Ayeleta challenged me to speak and go deeper into spoken Latin. I really appreciated her ability to gently challenge.

After every lesson with Oxford Latinitas, I not only feel much more confident about speaking Latin, but I also become more interested in the language and its history. Pierre explains the grammar very well and encourages the students to discuss what we have read in Latin, something which has helped me to improve my speaking skills a lot.
