Prerequisite knowledge and skills

No previous knowledge of Latin is required. Learning a language requires regular personal work: therefore, it is not enough to simply passively attend classes (hence the need to prepare lessons and texts).
The classes are dedicated to answering questions, examining certain points, doing extra exercises and, as soon as possible, supervised translations of sentences, then short texts.
