About Online Courses

I offer online video classes for both Latin and Ancient Greek. These operate generally on a term and/or semester system. I offer 4 terms of 10-week classes each year, starting roughly January, April, July, October. I then offer some more intensive classes meeting 2 times a week for 15 weeks, matching more to the US spring/fall semesters.

For Greek, I offer introductory classes that work through the Athenaze books in sequence, with a focus on communication and teaching in Greek. In addition to this, I teach more free-form conversational classes with communicative-focused activities. At an intermediate level I offer ‘read and discuss’ type classes in Greek. Those offers vary term to term.

For Latin, I offer introductory classes that work through the LLPSI books, beginning with Familia Romana, but also working with Roma Aeterna and other supplements. In addition to this, I offer conversational classes with communicative-focused activities, as well as a unique “Latin role-playing-game” experience. At an intermediate level I offer ‘read and discuss’ type classes in Latin. Including a series of classes that works through Christian and thelogical writings from antiquity to the modern period. Other intermediate offerings vary term to term.

Mode:
Classes will be offered via Zoom. You’ll need decent internet, and preferably a headset or microphone and relatively quiet workspace. Students should also ensure they have acquired a copy of the textbook (if there is one) before the class begins.

Resources:

Classes are recorded and then made available to students after each session, so that they may review and rewatch at their leisure. They are also supported with access to other supplementary materials through a shared resource folders, and access to myself for questions outside class time, via email and via a private Slack.

Upcoming Courses:

Those for term 4, starting October 11th 2020, are listed  on the Shop page.

In 2021, I am looking at offering most of the above types of courses, as well as more intermediate options, including: Plato (Euthyphro, Crito, Apology, Phaedo), Greek novels (e.g. Aethiopica), the Book of Common Prayer in Koine, Ysengrimus, Boethius, Iter Subterraneum, and more Biblical and Patristic classes, and anything else I can convince you to take with me. If any of those interest you, do get in touch in advance to let me know.
