Latin language dinner

11 November 2013

There will be a Latin immersion dinner Tuesday 19 November.

There will be a Latin immersion dinner Tuesday 19 November. This is for anyone curious about speaking Latin; no prior experience or ability is required. No one will be judging you for mistakes of vocabulary or syntax! We will meet at 5 pm in my office (1.2 36 Tyndall Park Rd) for drinks, then proceed at 6 pm to the great hall at Bristol Grammar School for a variety of dishes taken from the recipe book attributed to the legendary Roman cook Apicius. The cost for everything will be £10. Please let me (Kurt Lampe) know if you'd like to attend, as we need to know numbers a few days in advance. Please also let me know if you require vegetarian options. (I can say already that there will be non-pork options, as I do not eat pork.)

     Now a little Latin: Cena latina die Martis 19 Novembris celebrabitur. Ergo si forte tecum putasti, "Utinam linguam latinam quasi vivam audiam, sermonem ineam, voces veterum incantem," ecce occasio nunc datur! Qui autem timet, ne quid perperam dicat, metum deponat: non schola erit, sed convivium. Veni igitur, lector benevole: laetaberis.
