Saturday, September 21, 2013
(This program continues for multiple sessions)
Saturdays, September 21 – November 23

1 – 3 pm

Led by Susan Pezzino

This course in beginning Latin offers something not usually found in introductory level classes: a brief sketch of both the ancient roots and the modern branches of a linguistic family tree. Intended for people with no prior knowledge of Latin but with speaking knowledge (two semester’ study) of a Romance language, this seminar will offer its participants a unique opportunity to view their languages of interest from immediate and long-range perspectives.

Susan Pezzino, a former United States Fulbright Scholar, holds an M.A. in applied linguistics and works as a professional language teacher and multimedia curriculum designer in Chicago.
