No pre-requisite is needed.

– Understanding of a Latin text (even of high difficulty), without using the dictionary
– In-depth knowledge of all the structures of Latin grammar
– Knowledge of the 2000 most frequent words in Latin classical literature

Through the reading of texts in Latin, which are designed to encourage language learning, students deal with literary classical Latin morphology, syntax and phraseology.
Lessons will be held completely in Latin: following the fundamentals of the inductive-contextual methodology, the active use of Latin language both by the students and the teacher turns passive learning into an active competence, thus ensuring a sound knowledge of the language. Readings of some original Latin texts complete the course program. See the program in details
The course consists in 100 video-lessons, which are available on demand according to the student’s needs: at the time of purchase, the student will receive a link through which she or he will be able to view the video-lessons until the expiration of the link itself.
