Latin Tutor Taipei Available to Teach All Levels of Latin Language and Literature

Study Latin(all levels) and discover how this beautiful language can help improve your English, your ability to think clearly, and your understanding of how to solve modern and historical problems. Ninety-five percent of the words used in academic writing come from Latin. If you enjoy literature, history, philosophy, anthropology, mythology, and philology, these are featured in any solid study of Latin. Within 30 minutes of the start of the first class, you will be translating sentences from the above and from many other areas. There is no need to waste class time with general conversation since Latin is mainly utilized as a literary language. You can check the internet and discover that students of Latin do better than any other group on standardized tests. The instructor taught Latin at National Taiwan University for many decades. I graduated in Classics from the University of Toronto, one of the best classics departments in the world. You will be using the Wheelock System consisting of Wheelock's Latin, 38 Latin Stories and Scribblers, Sculptors, and Scribes. This course is intended for adults; it is fast-moving and comprehensive. You will be able to translate adapted sentences very quickly. All classes are face-to-face, especially at the beginning. Later we can arrange some online sessions. I am the only Latin tutor with university teaching experience, living and working in Taipei. I am now retired and have opened many one-on-one and group classes. Please contact me if you have any questions. Studying Latin can be a life-changing experience for an excellent student.

Extra information

I conduct most classes in Gongguan, the Xinyi area or on Fushing North Road (just South of Minshuan). Sometimes it is possible to meet in the student's home if you live in very central Taipei. It is better to have the first class in a nearby coffee shop. I do not teach outside Taipei or in Wanhua, Xinmen or Neihu.

Latin lessons for all levels (beginners, intermediates, advanced, higher education students)
Associate professor, Doctor of Letters (Paris IV Sorbonne), teaches Latin at all levels. This course is aimed at anyone wishing to learn or relearn the Latin language, progressively access literature, history, philosophy, ancient sciences, and approach Latin culture. It is also intended for any pupil or student wishing for support in this subject. Learning the Latin language presupposes a few solid bases of French grammar that we review of course if necessary, before installing Latin grammatical knowledge. Learning Latin develops the rigor and sense of translation.

That's why I make sure the atmosphere is stress-free and nice. I also want my lessons to be as effective as possible. Therefore, I make sure they are well-prepared, although they can be altered at any point, should such an opportunity arise. I like explaining things in a variety of ways as well as make use of dictionaries, diagrams, etc. When it comes to students who want to sit an exam, I am very demanding.

Private lessons in Latin - Greek - ancient culture - Hebrew
If you want to learn the secrets of French, its complicated spelling, its sometimes obscure grammar, the history of its vocabulary ... do Latin (and Greek!)! Moreover, a Latin course is compulsory at the University when studying Romanesque diapers (French, Italian, Spanish, etc.), ancient history and archeology. At the same time, you will discover the foundations of our civilization which has deep roots in Antiquity. I taught Latin and Greek in secondary 1 (9 a.m. to 11 a.m.) and 2 in the cantons of Vaud and Geneva: I can help prepare for exams.

Ian
Living Latin through Comprehensible Input (Contemporary and Medieval Latin)
You will learn Latin the way it was meant to be learned - through conversation! Medieval scholars and contemporary language researchers alike advocate the use of dialogues and comprehensible input for language acquisition, and it most certainly works! As opposed to the "memorise grammar rules and then babble them in front of the class" approach that was demonstrated by the infamous "Romanēs eunt domus" scene from Monty Python's "The Life of Brian", you will learn to feel the grammar, so that you will be able to use the different cases of Latin without even thinking about it, just like a native speaker! For this class we will be using the following books, depending on the learner's level: Hans Øreberg's "Lingua Latīna per sē Illustrāta" "Corderiī Colloquia" Erasmus Rask's "Colloquia Familiaria" I will be the collocutor and I will answer the learner's questions and explain certain oddities solely in Latin (I will use a second language only when the situation calls for it) We will also engage in free-form conversations, discussions of the dialogues, of our life experiences etc so that the learner can apply what they learn to real-life situations and expand their vocabulary

Cogito ergo sum. La bellezza della lingua e letteratura latina
Nel latino risiedono le radici non solo delle lingue romanze, ma anche della cultura europea. Imparare questa lingua e la sua letteratura può essere una sfida estremamente arricchente ed entusiasmante. Le mie lezioni mirano ad offrire gli strumenti per tradurre e apprezzare al meglio i testi latini, sottolineando come parole e strutture latine sono tutt'ora vive nelle lingue moderne.
