Experience a welcoming space where a range of Latin speaking abilities are present, allowing you to find your own level of Latin conversation. First-time Latin speakers who have experience in studying Latin but not speaking it will find the activities both enjoyable and appropriately challenging. For experienced and intermediate level speakers, the environment offers the opportunity to improve your speaking ability by taking part in various activities guided by our experienced staff
Participants live together for a week while they speak, read, prepare meals, and relax – all while communicating entirely in Latin. Rusticatio offers high-energy conversation exercises and readings from Latin literature. Through a variety of exchanges, including instructional sessions, a common kitchen, daily shared tasks, and downtime, you will enjoy a feeling of camaraderie while experiencing first-hand various teaching methods which are directly applicable to teaching Latin effectively in the classroom.
The cost of $1050 includes meals (breakfast, lunch and dinner), accommodation for 4 nights and all tuition. To guarantee the quality of the program, spaces have been limited to around 30. Places will be granted to suitable applicants in order of their registration and payment. If you do not secure a spot, all money will (of course) be refunded.
