This is our second group in Southwell, jointly with Newark, with a dozen enthusiastic members. We are now (April 2019) on Book 4 of the Cambridge Latin Course . We have room for one or two more members who have some acquaintance with the language. We meet fortnightly in the Library, from 10.15 to 11.45.
Tom Chamberlain - Group Leader
Latin For Improvers
This group was formed out of the original Latin Group set up some ten years ago.
It is suitable for anyone with some knowledge of Latin who would like to relearn or improve their knowledge of the language and read some Latin authors in their original and unaltered format. The group is certainly not “advanced”. We have selected texts that we might have studied for O level in the 1950s and 1960s.
The sessions are split into two.
In the first part we are revising the language using the current course for GCSE (by Cullen/Taylor).
In the second part we read longer passages by Latin Authors. We read for enjoyment. There is no requirement for anyone to translate if they would rather follow whilst others translate..
If anyone is interested but in doubt as to the level, please do contact us or give us a try.
The group currently meets every other Monday by Zoom.
