LatinPerDiem (LPD) strives to create accessible, easy to understand instruction on the Latin (and sometimes Greek) language, using examples from both renowned and historically important works as well as relatively obscure source material you may have never heard of.
At LatinPerDiem, we want to create an environment where people from all walks of life can learn and appreciate the Classical Languages.
Why Choose LatinPerDiem?
Quality and Depth of Analysis
Nearly every word, every phrase, and every construction is explained and analyzed so that you can gain a true understanding of the material.
Exemplum regulam praecedit – show them, don’t just tell them!
Our pedagogical philosophy is that people learn language best when they see real-life uses in context, not merely abstractions. We provide Latin instruction using actual authors and texts, drawn from 2300 years of the corpus. We cover a variety of great authors of the Latin corpus, including Cicero, Caesar, Vergil, Augustine, Beza, Thomas Aquinas, Erasmus, and Protestant Reformers.
