The Malta Classics Association (MCA) and the Notarial Archives Foundation (NAF) are teaming up together to bring you a series of exam-track courses in Latin. These courses are intended to equip students with familiarity with Latin grammar and syntax structures and to therefore allow them to make greater independent use of the wealth of medieval and early modern documents throughout our archives.

Each of the below courses will follow up on the other. While it is not necessary for applicants to sign up for all courses at once, students wishing to join courses at a later stage would need to test-in by passing a mini-exam to check language knowledge and competence.

Lingua Latina Ab Initio 1 Lingua Latina Ab Initio 2 Lingua Latina Ab Initio 3
Timeframe October 2023 - January 2024 February - April 2024 May- August 2024
Hours (and Cumulative Hours) 20 20 (40) 20 (60)

The first course, Lingua Latina Ab Initio 1 will be running on Mondays and starting on 23 October 2023. Two courses will be running concurrently; an afternoon hybrid course will be held online and at the Notarial Registers Archives building on Mondays between 1:30pm and 3:30pm, and a later evening course will be held exclusively online also on Mondays between 6:00pm and 8:00pm. Spaces are limited and will be assigned on a first come, first served basis.

Discounts on courses for MCA members and for registrations to multiple courses are also available. Applicants who apply for two courses will also be receiving complimentary copy of the MCA’s Vox Aspecta, and those who register for three courses at once will be receiving a complementary copy of both Vox Aspecta and Vox Depicta.Payments will be collected in advance and refunds will not be given once courses are underway.
