Latin. Learn Latin with us.

Latin is the basis for many modern languages and remains a major influence in the study of the classics, science, academia and the law. Latin is an extremely useful language that will greatly enhance your understanding of English and provides a firm basis for studying any romance language. Our Latin program also exposes you to several classic works to provide participants with a strong understanding of the language.

Our beginners Latin classes are suitable for people who have no prior knowledge of Latin, while subsequent courses progressively increase the complexity of language concepts. If you want to learn Latin, our Latin courses are ideal for adult learners to enjoy a practical and social experience while you learn. Learn Latin the smart way with Latin courses at CCE, the University of Sydney.
