a new Latin course, by Julian Morgan


Welcome to Imperium

Imperium is a Latin course for the twenty-first century; unique, highly resourced and written to make fullest use of modern technology. Its texts follow the life of the Emperor Hadrian, from his early childhood to his later years, as he became the most powerful man in the Roman world.

Imperium is tried, tested and ready for general use, after a trialling period of six years. It consists of three course books, a Grammar and Syntax Guide, a puzzle book and a collection of Latin unseens for advanced users. There is a short film guide to all the main materials in the course on youtube at this link.

All of our Imperium Latin materials are published by J-PROGS. Our books can be ordered from Amazon but are also available as pdf files in our Site Support Packs, which can be bought by schools. Please browse this website to read more about the materials and their distribution.

Some words from Maria Duckham, of Taunton School

I wish someone had explained things to me like this when I did Latin at school: this is a way of breaking the myth that it is an impossibly difficult subject. Students love the fact that it is a book which is theirs to write on and they do translation from English into Latin better as a result of doing your course. One of the great things is that Imperium Latin is not written as a dry document: we hear your voice through your writing and it feels like you are in the room. Most students who start with your course go on to do GCSE and there are now kids doing Latin at a high level because of your books.
