Newsletter: Summer School Edition

Hello everyone, 

Welcome to this special edition of the newsletter which reports all the news from the Belfast Summer School in Latin and Classical Greek. We had lots of fun learning ancient languages! 

Building on the enthusiasm of the summer school classes, you will find below information about online Greek and Latin lessons.

Best wishes, Helen

Online group class

Intermediate Classical Greek

This is a class which has been meeting for several years, and we are always happy to welcome new members. This is a leisure class (no exam preparation) which combines grammar explanations, exercises and translations. We have used the Athenaze course and have recently switched to Greek to GCSE book 2. 

This group has been meeting in person in Belfast but moved online in March due to the Covid crisis. We will continue to meet online for one hour per week on Mondays at 6pm UK time during the autumn term, commencing on 14th September until 7th December. There will be no class on 26th October. 

Fee for 12 classes is £40. Contact me here if you're interested.

Individual Lessons

Classical Greek at all levels

I am available for individual lessons and am happy to arrange a virtual meeting to discuss your requirements. All lessons are conducted on Zoom. 

I use the Greek to GCSE textbooks by John Taylor, but happy to use another book if you have a preference. I make my own notes on all grammar concepts and these are shared on screen during lessons. Explanations are illustrated with a smartpen using screensharing, and all notes are emailed to students afterwards.

Learn Latin

Belfast Summer School tutor, Stephen McCarthy, is available for individual Latin lessons on Zoom. 

Stephen is in the final stages of his PhD on Ancient Physics, Epicurus, and Lucretius, and he has been central to the success of the Summer School since it began. 

At the first summer school in 2016, he was a guest lecturer, delivering a paper on the poet Sappho.  The following year, 2017, Latin classes were added to the summer school programme and Stephen has taught every year since at both beginners and intermediate level.

Stephen can be contacted by email here.

Belfast Summer School in Latin and Classical Greek

As 2020 began, plans were in train for the Belfast Summer School in Latin and Classical Greek in July but by the beginning of March 2020, it was clear that the Covid crisis was going to disrupt our plans. As the UK went into lockdown and we learned that large gatherings were being forbidden, regretfully I cancelled the summer school. But in early May, a virtual summer school on a much smaller scale (or so I thought) was advertised on social media and various email lists and before long it was clear that we weren’t thinking big enough!
