Latin was the language of some of the greatest thinkers of the world and had a profound influence on the development of Western thought over the last two millenia. A knowledge of Latin enables you to engage with these writers; to read Cicero’s oratory in all its brilliance, reflect on Virgil’s Aeneid or consider Caesar’s strategic genius.
Classical languages teach you to think; to read carefully, to analyse critically and to do so laterally and logically. In a world that has become fixated with vocational education and the simplification of ideas, classical languages provide intellectual training while giving their students a wonderful insight into some of history’s greatest contributors to literature, law, religion and philosophy.
Latin requires a knowledge of grammar and vocabulary. This knowledge then enables students to begin to develop the skills associated with learning Latin, such as reading, translating and comprehension. Here at onlineclassicstutor.com.au we draw upon the experience of highly qualified experts in reading and teaching Classical languages to provide our students with work personally tailored to meet their own learning situation.
Lessons are conducted either face to face or via Skype, which enables us to overcome the tyranny of distance in providing our services to eager students throughout Oceania and the Asia pacific.
