Latin for Beginners


This is an introductory course for the many of our members who want to gain an understanding of the language that has been used down the centuries in our early educational and legal institutes. It will prepare students to join the more advanced Latin class that John offers.



John provides an introduction to the Latin of the classics and encourages understanding of Latin proverbs, legal and church Latin and the role of this ‘dead’ language in fashioning modern linguistics. ‘Mens sana in corpore sano’ – a healthy mind in a healthy body – could almost be the U3A motto.
