Latin Immersion Experiences

Conventiculum Dickinsoniense and the Conventiculum Lexintoniense
The Conventiculum Dickinsoniense is located at Dickinson College, Pennsylvania, and the Conventiculum Lexintoniense is at the University of Kentucky in Lexington, Kentucky. The stimulating program at Dickinson college focuses around reading, discussing, and interpreting Latin texts using Latin only as the communicative language. An expanded program is planned for the Lexington conventiculum that will include for the first time a parallel immersion event in spoken ancient Greek.

Living Latin in New York City 
Living Latin in New York City is a two-day Living Latin conference in the heart of Manhattan. It is designed to allow teachers and students of Latin to explore and practice the active use of Latin in the classroom. In the fabulous setting of Fordham University’s Lincoln Center Campus, the program includes lectures on various aspects of Latin language and pedagogy and smaller sessions in which participants practice spoken Latin techniques themselves. Daily coffee hours and one optional group dinner allow for informal contact and exchange with other teachers. Professional development credit is available.
