International Latin summer course

Today, we are pleased to announce that the Italian Institute for Classical Studies has officially formalized a prestigious international collaboration with the University of Jordan.
Thanks to this collaboration, we are launching a project with extraordinary cultural significance and historical value: for the first time in centuries, Latin will once again be spoken in the Arabic world.

This coming June 30 through August 2, 2018, our Institute will hold an intensive Latin summer course in the city of Amman, at the campus of the University of Jordan. As is characteristic of our teaching style, the course will be conducted exclusively in the Latin language, using inductive-contextual methods.

Instructors, researchers and students from all across the Arabic world will gather in the capital of Jordan and, after only five weeks of study, even those starting at the most basic level will have acquired the competency necessary to have direct access to fluently read texts of Latin literature in the original language.
