Learn Latin at City Lit in London and Online

Latin courses at City Lit range from beginner to advanced level. As a beginner you will be first introduced to Latin grammar through exercises and readings, and later you will develop the skills to translate and analyse Latin literature in the original language.

Although there are no native speakers today, Latin has contributed many words to the English language, in some cases directly and, in other cases, via the Romance languages such as French, Italian and Spanish. That's why learning Latin is fantastic ground-work for becoming multilingual.
