Conventiculum Latinum - July 17-24

Conventiculum Latinum,
Annual Workshop for Spoken Latin to be held In Lexington at the University of
Kentucky from 17–24 July 2013.

These summer workshops have become internationally known for providing a stimulating occasion in which participants can live for an extended period of time in an all-Latin environment, speaking and hearing no language but Latin.  In 2013, the Conventiculum Lexintoniense will celebrate its seventeenth consecutive year.  From the inception of the Conventiculum to the present time its organizers have been, and are still refining, revising and adding to the Conventiculum’s range of activities - all with a view to enhancing the experience of those who take part.  First-time participants and people new to spoken Latin are especially welcome, and the Conventiculum features special sessions designed with these people in mind.
