Summer courses 2018 in spoken Latin and Greek — Learn Latin!

Learn to speak Latin at the various Latin summer courses.

The last few years we've seen an explosion in the amount of spoken Latin (and Greek) summer courses available such that Pliny might well say:

Magnum proventum conventiculorum annus hic attulit.

What was once a rare and, ut vera dicam, quite an obscure occupation for Latin enthusiasts, the spoken Latin summer programs have grown into a cornerstone of the growing movement promoting the active use of Latin in and out of the classroom.

Last year I gathered all the dates and links in a post; having received numerous emails asking for a similar list of this year's events, I decided to put a new list together.

Bear in mind that I only have experience with a few of them, so I cannot vouch for the quality. Click the name of the programs to access the accompanying website and learn more about them.

If you know of any programs not on the list, leave a comment or contact us on TwitterFacebook or

So here it is, the spoken Latin and Greek programs of 2018!
