Living Latin at UCL

A message from UCL Living Latin….

Dear all,

We are delighted to announce that Living Latin is returning to UCL for its third year! Just as last year, we’re offering you three different classes depending on your level of Latin:

Beginners’– Monday 15:00-16:00 (term 1), Monday 16:00-17:00 (term 2)

These classes are open to Latinists of all levels, even those without any experience of the language. We’ll start with the basics as you join us to learn Latin in Latin!

Intermediate – Friday 13:00-14:00 (term 1), Friday 10:00-11:00 (term 2)

These classes are aimed at those of you with a good grounding in Latin grammar. With us, you’ll turn your passive knowledge of Latin into an ability to actively speak it, while you see your ability to read Latin texts vastly improve and your engagement with Roman authors and their cultural contexts deepen.

The Art of Rhetoric – Tuesday 18:00-20:00 (terms 1&2)

Ever wanted to learn rhetoric like the Romans? During the first half hour of these sessions, we’ll read texts together, with the rest of the session dedicated to more formal rhetorical exercises and creatively engaging with Latin in debate. Although these sessions are dedicated towards more advanced speakers, all are welcome to come and listen—you’ll surprise yourself with how much you’re able to pick up.

Throughout the year we shall also host social events and guest lectures, details of which we shall communicate with you at a later date.

We’re holding our first Introductory Session at 18:00 on Tuesday 1st October in room G09, Gordon House, 29 Gordon Square. We very much look forward to seeing you then.

For more information, you can email us at, and follow us on Twitter @UCLlivinglatin.

Best wishes,
