Summer School: Latin


Latin does NOT need to be drudgery. It can be fun and interesting. There are so many great benefits to learning Latin, from higher ACT scores to understanding the language of antiquity and so much more. Why not make it fun to learn?!

Well, we're here to help in that area.

This June we'll be translating Winnie Ille Pu (that's Winnie the Pooh for you non-Latinistas) and we hope you'll join us ...
