Language teaching

I am firmly of the view that Latin should be taught inclusively, using evidence-based paedagogical methods aimed at language acquisition. When I teach, I therefore aim to provide as much comprehensible input as possible in Latin and in an environment that helps learning to happen.

Since September 2019, I have led the intermediate Latin class as part of the UCL Living Latin Society, teaching both in person and, since the COVID-19 lockdown, on-line. My classes aim to improve proficiency in Latin reading, writing, listening and speaking at the same time as introducing students to texts from across Latin’s rich 2,500 year history.
