Little did the class (or the teacher) imagine when they started in 2010 that they would keep going for five years. We have reached the joyous stage now of having spent much of the last year on the wonderful 2nd book of Vergil's Aeneid (the Wooden Horse bit) and on Pliny's fascinating writing about the famous eruption of Vesuvius. Also, to the great surprise of the class, they discovered that Radio Finland does a digest of world news every Friday night in Latin and we translate some of that each week. So; we head now into our 7th year, 'if we're spared,' as the class's senior member says.
The Improvers class which started in September 2013 have improved so much that the two groups are now of a similar standard and are now merged, from September 2018.
