LA FONDATION HUMANITAS POUR LES HUMANITÉS GRÉCO-LATINES AU QUÉBEC
En juin, vivez 24 heures de latin !
Si vous souhaitez découvrir — ou redécouvrir — le latin, participez à ce cours qui vous permettra, à raison de deux rencontres par semaine, d’apprendre à connaître de manière stimulante les structures de cette langue. Sans viser l’apprentissage systématique, ce cours fondé sur la lecture des textes et de nombreux exercices pratiques vous permettra de vous familiariser avec la langue dont usèrent les Romains, des poèmes d’amour d’Ovide aux pensées morales de Sénèque. Outre la compréhension du fonctionnement d’une langue à déclinaisons et le développement de réflexes propre à son apprentissage, ce cours vous donnera aussi l’occasion d’aborder l’étymologie et l’histoire du français.
Cégep de Sainte-Foy, du 30 mai au 22 juin, les lundis et mercredis de 9h à 12h.
Les frais d’inscription sont de 100 $ tout compris. Pour tout renseignement, contactez Sophie Girard : firstname.lastname@example.org
