SALVI Offers Many Spoken Latin opportunities–and How to Use More Spoken Latin in YOUR Classroom!
So you want to explore using spoken Latin in your classes? Intrigued and want to learn more? There are many opportunities to do so! The organization that has the largest number of opportunities is SALVI (Septentrionale Americanum Latinitatis Vivae Institutum). This year, they offer you 5 separate choices:
• Biduum Latinum — a weekend event designed to jump start or recharge your active Latin. Getty Villa, Malibu, CA (January 12-13); Claymont Mansion, Charles Town, WV (February 22-24); Clear Creek Abbey, Tulsa, OK (March 9-11). (Three events, same curriculum–Pick one!)
• Academia Aestiva Latina — June 24-28, a semi-immersion event for secondary school students. Co-sponsored and hosted by the Getty Villa, Malibu, CA.
• Septimana Californiana — July 1-8, a full week of Latin discussions and sight-seeing excursions. Housed at Loyola Marymount University, Los Angeles, CA.
• Rusticatio — July 4-11 AND July 18-25; a full week of classroom sessions, cooking, and playing in Latin. Housed at Claymont Mansion, Charles Town, WV. (2 weeks, same curriculum–Pick one!)
• Pedagogy Rusticatio (conducted in English) — July 12-17; an intensive introduction to best practices in language instruction, with guided practice sessions. Housed at Claymont Mansion, Charles Town, WV.
Tecum Latine versari volumus! (We want to hang out with you in Latin!) Please consider joining us at one of our immersion Latin experiences. Here are our top three reasons for joining in any of these fun, interactive, learning events:
communicating entirely in Latin for a whole week or weekend
supportive, intimidation-free environment
Nancy Llewellyn’s amazing pedagogical energy
For even more reasons and also registration information, head on over to our website, www.latin.org (As a matter of fact Biduum Virginianum and Biduum Oklahomense are filling up fast — don’t delay!)
Very much hoping to see you at a a SALVI event this year!
