SALVI Full-Immersion Latin Seminars for Summer 2012

SALVI (Septentrionale Americanum Latinitatis Vivae Institutum or North American Institute for Living Latin Studies) is pleased to announce two full-immersion Latin seminars for Summer 2012:

Septimana Californiana, July 2-9, 2012, in Los Angeles, California

Septimana Californiana, based on the lovely campus of Loyola Marymount University, is a full-immersion Latin workshop offering thought-provoking discussions, readings from Latin literature, Latin composition exercises, communal meals (most of which are included in the price), and informative lectures given by expert Latin speakers on a variety of topics. Participants will also enjoy guided tours, given in Latin, to many of Los Angeles' world-famous sights. Excursions include the Santa Monica Pier, Venice Beach, Griffith Observatory, the Los Angeles Museum of Contemporary Art, and the Getty Villa.

Rusticatio, July 12-19, 2012, in Charles Town, West Virginia

Rusticatio is a full-immersion Latin workshop offering high-energy conversation exercises and readings from Latin literature. In a supportive, intimidation-free environment, Rusticatio participants live together for seven days while they speak, read, write, cook and relax—all while communicating entirely in Latin. Through a variety of exchanges, including instructional sessions, a common kitchen, daily shared tasks, down-time, and excellent food and wine (which are abundant and included in the price), Rusticatio participants enjoy a feeling of camaraderie while they experience first-hand various teaching methods that are directly applicable to teaching Latin in the classroom.
