Electronic Latin Dictionaries

Linda Emanuel shared some "reviews" from a UK Latin listserv regarding a variety of electronic Latin dictionaries. There are several which are available as an iOS (iPod/iPad/iPhone) app:


Alternatively there are also some which are web-based:


Two Latin Immersion Experiences for Summer 2015

Not only teachers, who may wish to develop their ability use Latin actively and extempore in the classroom to augment whatever teaching methods they prefer to use, but anyone at all devoted to Latin, such as professors, graduate students, and those who read Latin for personal enrichment, can benefit from both of these week-long seminars, which are exclusively aimed at helping those who take part to acquire a more instinctive and active command of the Latin language.

Annual Institute Update

The 51st Annual Institute was a resounding success! In celebration of 50 years of CAES, over 50 CAES members attended this year's conference. At the banquet Professor Emeritus Donald Mills gave a wonderful address outlining the history of CAES and many of the regional affiliates across the state. After, CAES Vice President Ellyn Bibik asked our members to share with the group what inspired us to become Latin teachers. Many attendees stepped up to the podium and shared the story of their journey to this rich and rewarding vocation.

The workshops were well attended, and many presenters have made their materials available on our website. Click this link to browse the workshop files:  http://goo.gl/Il5HO3

If you were unable to attend, please know that you were missed. We hope that you will take this moment to mark your calendar with the dates of the 52nd Annual Institute: October 23-25, 2015. We will be meeting at the Crowne Plaza in Syracuse, and our board and Institute committee are all ready preparing things.

In the meantime, if you are looking for ways to contribute to, and support CAES, please consider:

Thank you for your continued interest in and support of the only professional organization dedicated to the teaching and sharing of Latin and the Classics in New York State!
