Living Latin in NYC
February 14 - 15, 2014
Living Latin in New York City is a two-day Living Latin conference in the heart of Manhattan. It is designed to allow teachers and students of Latin to explore and practice the active use of Latin in the classroom. In the fabulous setting of Fordham University’s Lincoln Center Campus, the program includes lectures on various aspects of Latin language and pedagogy and smaller sessions in which participants practice spoken Latin techniques themselves. Daily coffee hours and one optional group dinner allow for informal contact and exchange with other teachers. Professional development credit is available. This program is made possible in part by the generous support of the New York Classical Club.
Anna Andresian holds a B.A. in Classics from Brown University and an M.St. from the University of Oxford. Anna is currently based in Brooklyn, NY where she is works as a educational software developer. In the 2013-2014 academic year, Anna is teaching an online Latin conversation course through Telepaideia.
