Contact This Group

This is Latin for Enjoyment. We are a small group; several members joined as complete beginners, whilst others came with considerable knowledge of Latin. What we all have in common is a real interest in language in all its forms and an eagerness to tackle an intellectual challenge. Grammar does have to be confronted from time to time, but as in most activities in life, one does have to play by the rules. We are using “ECCE ROMANI – 3” as our textbook, for ongoing reading practice and grammar revision, together with translations, exercises and activities from other sources, including short passages about current events from a Finnish website “Nuntii Latini”.

We normally meet at 2:00pm on the 2nd and 4th Mondays, at 9 Osborne Grove, 367 Colne Road, Burnley BB10 2LB
