The Latin Group meets on the 1st Monday of the month at 2.00pm in the Senior Citizens’ Club room, SHIFNAL TF11 8EQ.
Latin is an ancient language with a modern relevance. We speak words derived from Latin every time we open our mouths; our bodies are described with Latin nouns; the plants in our gardens have Latin names and we see it on the supermarket shelves – Brillo, Nivea, Vimto – to name just a few brands.
The Wrekin U3A Latin Group was formed in 2012 and the group is made up of people with mixed experiences of learning the language, ranging from no knowledge to A level. We also have different approaches to learning so our meetings combine some formal translation work with puzzles and discussions of all things Roman. We are basing our learning on the Cambridge Latin Course which combines language with Roman culture.
New members are always welcome. If you are new to the language, we have reached Book 3 so some effort would be required to catch the group up. An alternative would be to approach Latin Group 2.
