Latin – the universal key to Romance languages. Latin – the language that dominated Europe, from Hadrian’s Wall to north Africa, from the Atlantic coast to the Aegean Sea. Latin – the really easy-to-learn language.

OK, it isn’t so easy to compose verse in Latin. But it’s not so hard to learn the construction of a basic Latin sentence, and to begin to understand the lines of even a complex master like Virgil.

That’s how you’ll end up after these twelve video lessons, each of around six minutes long. In an hour and a half – or two lunch breaks – you’ll learn the rudiments of Latin: the word order; the cases; the genders; all four conjugations and all five declensions.

Harry is a journalist, author and and pundit who writes for the Daily Telegraph, the Spectator and many other publications. His books include the best-selling Amo, Amas, Amat: How to Become a Latin Lover (Short Books) and Harry Mount’s Odyssey: In the Footsteps of Ancient Greece (Bloomsbury).

In Part One of “Learn Latin with Harry Mount”, Harry will be your teacher and guide.

You can easily go back over individual talks, but, if you prefer, just watch them all the way through – and you’ll have a pretty good grounding in the greatest language of all. At the end of the whole course, there is a basic Latin sentence for you to translate, and the first words of Virgil’s Aeneid.

Our course also offers a pile of useful notes, downloadable as a pdf, and access to our Latin lovers forum, where you can pose queries to Mr Mount.
