Latin online lessons are in very small groups. Improvers courses and beginners courses may start at various times of the year depending on demand. Please contact Debbie if you would like to join, advising her of your child’s current level or if they are a beginner and we will try to accommodate you. We have found that if children miss any lessons they really need to catch up by doing the homework so they don’t get ‘lost’. Weekly practice and homework is also very important as it is so easy to get behind and very hard to catch up again.

This is an interesting article if you are wondering what the benefits are to children who learn Latin: https://www.somptingabbotts.com/blog/the-unexpected-benefits-of-learning-latin-for-children

“Its payback benefit may well be much greater. Learning Latin is an exercise of the intellect that helps stretch and develop the brains of children. The more they learn of Latin, the better they may well be at many other subjects”

  • Learning Latin strengthens literacy skills in English
  • Latin develops a child for computer programming
