The Latin group, a joint venture with members of Islington U3A, has evolved to around the old O-level standard. One or two members are less advanced but are happy to extend themselves; and one or two are more advanced, but we all support each other in decoding the Latin texts and improving our skills. Help is available if you are working at a lower level and need someone to explain grammar points or mark your ‘homework’ from your own private study.We prepare and translate some prose and poetry each week. We tackle grammar points as we go and study scanning poetic metre. We are a co-operative group to learn and enjoy Latin; and we can peep into an ancient mind-set. No tests, exams, failures or feeling stupid. Just some mind-stretching, and valuable insights into our own culture. If you want to come for a taster, you would be welcome

❑ Please note that the group is not suitable for beginners
