Living Latin is coming to South Africa!Rusticatio is week-long immersion suitable for all who have completed at least two years of university Latin or equivalent. This short questionnaire is to ascertain how many people in South Africa would be interested in attending an active Latin workshop. If there is enough interest, it will be held late 2017 or early 2018, taking into account academic schedules as much as possible.
About RusticatioVarious conversational activities help you learn and use daily vocabulary and essential grammatical constructions. Participants will live together, play together, even cook their meals together. If you – whatever your age - want to activate your spoken Latin in a beginner-friendly environment, this is for you!A first workshop was hosted preceding the 2015 CASA conference in Potchefstroom and 2016 saw South Africans take part in Rusticatio in North America.The envisaged workshop will be presented by a skilled group of people from North America who are part of a non-profit organisation called SALVI (Septentrionale Americanum Latinitatis Vivae Institutum). SALVI has presented active Latin programs for 20 years to wide acclaim.
