Latin Day is a program of the Ascanius Youth Classics Institute and was designed to bring Latin to life for our eighth graders. Students (discipulī) participated in a variety of immersion activities and games to improve their overall vocabulary, grammar and oral comprehension. The program was conducted entirely in Latine and led by Mattew Webb, Director of Ascanius. Students were encouraged to speak only in Latin and to fully immerse themselves in all aspects of the language in order to view the language in a new and complex way. The enthusiasm, humor and excitement were evident throughout the symposium!
Quid magnus dies erat! (what a day it was!)
