Classical Voices at St Andrew’s

Ancient Voices offers short courses in Latin and Greek (beginners, intermediate and advanced levels), Hebrew and Egyptian hieroglyphs (both beginners only), open to all. For each language ‘stream’, you receive 8 hours of language tuition, resources, drop-in language clinics, as well as additional sessions. The courses are timetabled so that you can do just one language or multiple languages in parallel; the timings also make the courses convenient for participants in North America or across Europe.
