Scholae ubique: Latin and Greek intensive courses everywhere
Ne pudeat, quae nescieris, te velle doceri:
scire aliquid, laus est; culpa est, nil discere velle.
Cato, Disticha, IV, 29.
What are they?
The scholae ubique (“lessons everywhere”) are intensive courses lasting multiple weeks: a full immersion into the Latin or Greek language. You will learn to read, write, speak and understand the language.
You won’t listen to the teacher passively: you will be stimulated to answer, talk, read, write, and do exercises. In short, you will be encouraged to use the language actively. Our lessons are engaging and pleasant: if you don’t believe us, look at the video below.
Whom are they for?
The scholae ubique are for people who live, or are willing to meet, in the same place, to attend 5 or 6 lessons per day.
We will send you one of our teachers. What we want is to create, together with you, a familiar and confident atmosphere, thus making learning easier and quicker.
For Latin, we use Lingua Latina per se illustrata, by H. H. Ørberg, and for Greek Athènaze (Italian edition), by M. Balme, G. Lawall, L. Miraglia and T. F. Bórri.
These two books are based on the so-called nature method, or inductive-contextual method: both grammar and vocabulary are carefully taught and learned inductively, i.e. from context (which is the natural process of learning).
Latin lessons are in Latin, and Greek lessons are in Greek: the language is thus constantly practiced. Other learning tools, such as phraseologies and exercise books, will be suggested by the teacher, if he considers them useful. The teacher will also have recourse to “total physical response” (TPR) and other teaching techniques, which will make our lessons pleasant, interesting and stimulating.
