Welcome to the Teacher Area. Imperium was written to be taught in a modern classroom, using a data projector or interactive whiteboard in almost every lesson. This course was born of a desire to teach Latin in a high-tech way, but also with a traditionalist's eye for grammatical learning and accuracy.
Recent private teaching has shown that the course can be taught at incredible speed in a small class or single learner scenario - read about the experience here.
Please note that if you are buying 5 or more of the Imperium books for your class, I should be able to do you an advantageous deal on prices, so please email me to discuss your needs.
Please note also that there is a new page for U3A members (teachers and learners) at this link.
