Is Latin alive in your school or community? Are you attending (or hosting!) a Cena Latina (Latin Dinner) in your area? We'd love to hear about it. Please send us photos, videos, or anything else you like, to let us know what you're doing.
Spend the day with friends in beautiful Seattle, WA, enjoying food, the sights, and Latin conversation. During the 2009-2010 academic year the Commorationes Vasintonienses will take place November 14th, February 20th, April 3rd, and May 15th.
Rusticatio is by no means the only place you can go to speak Latin. There are a number of other full-immersion Latin workshops in the United States and abroad, and there might be a cena Latina, prandium Latinum, or circulus Latinus in your area. And if there isn't one, you can start your own!
Here is a list of some other workshops you can check out. This list is not exhaustive. These workshops are not associated with SALVI.
Participants in the workshop engage in immersive active-Latin activities that provide practice in important expressions for basic oral communication. The workshop organizers are: Neil Coffee, Associate Professor of Classics at UB and Anna Andresian, teacher at Sage Ridge School, Independent Day School, Reno, NV.
Questions regarding the workshop should be directed to Neil Coffee at ncoffee(at)buffalo.edu.
For application please email Professor Gina Soter of the University of Michigan at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If there are other workshops we should know about, please tell us!
