This year too, the Center for Classical Studies GrecoLatinoVivo, in collaboration with Scuola Toscana, presents an intensive Latin course which will take place in the beautiful Florentine countryside at the Casa al Giogo Resort, where the course will be held as well as where teachers and students alike will be accomodated.
The course is intended for high school students aged 14 to 18 years, who want to begin, refresh or master their knowledge of the Latin language.
Our Center has developed a modern approach in the study of these languages, through the direct method, which enables students to learn Latin and Greek through the students’ constant involvement in reading, listening, comprehension exercises and active production. Since its opening two years ago, GrecoLatinoVivo has taught the classical languages to more than 250 students using the natural method.
You can download the full program by clicking here.
The duration of the Latin course will be 3 weeks long for all those want to begin, refresh or master their knowledge of Latin.
The classes will be held exclusively in Latin, and Latin will be the only language that the students will communicate in, aided by the teachers at every step of the way.
According to the most recent discoveries in the field of language acquisition, this is found to be the most effective method for learning any given language in a short period of time.
The course provides a gradual acquisition of lexical and morpho-syntactic structures of the language with cognitive processes taken into consideration. A part of the course will be dedicated specifically to translation techniques, which are often treated inadequately in schools.
The number of available places is limited, so we advise you to sign up as soon as possible, by clicking here.
The students will find themselves in a beautiful rural area on the outskirts of Florence, in a comfortable and cozy countryside resort. The students, immersed in nature, will have the chance to enjoy one of the most fascinating areas of central Italy. They will also have the chance to visit the less known, but nevertheless extremely important “Roman Florence”, accompanied by their teachers.
We will spend three weeks in a secluded environment, away from the city noise, in a resort at approximately 20 kilometers’ distance from the city, with full board, and we will benefit from a true and proper immersion both in the Latin language and culture as well as in the surrounding nature.
