SALVI (Septentrionale Americanum Latinitatis Vivae Institutum, or North American Institute for Living Latin Studies) proudly presents the second annual Claymont Biduum Latinum—a full-immersion Latin weekend workshop. The Biduum Latinum will be a restorative weekend in which we experience a sort of “mini- Rusticatio.”
Still here in the Biduum Latinum from the Rusticatio:
The event seeks to target two distinct groups of people. It will offer a mid-year “fix” of immersion Latin at Claymont for Rusticatio alumni. And, it will give not-yet-alumni (☺) a weekend—not a full week—of immersion Latin. You can get a taste during the Biduum, and then come back for more in the summer at the Rusticatio!
Program Dates: February 22–24, 2013. (Arrival: Friday, February 22, between 3 and 6 p.m.; Departure: Sunday, February 24 between noon and 3 p.m.)
Eligibility: You are eligible to attend this workshop if you have already learned Latin on paper and are interested in developing active command of the spoken language. Please note that Biduum is not an introductory Latin course and thus it is not for people who have no knowledge of the language. Typically, participants have completed, at a minimum, the equivalent of two years of traditional college Latin or four years of a high school Latin program. It is not necessary to have previous experience speaking Latin.
Location: We will reside and conduct our workshop sessions in the historic mansion house on the Claymont Estate. Built in the 1830s by a nephew of George Washington, the Claymont Mansion remained in the Washington family until the Civil War.
Cost: $295 per person, all-inclusive, covering tuition, room, full board, and instructional materials.
Transportation to and from Claymont is not included. Once admitted as a participant, you may pay for Biduum
Latinum Virginianum through PayPal (below), or by sending a check payable to SALVI to:
