The Oxford Ancient Languages Society

We are a student-run society at Oxford that exists for the promotion of the active use of ancient languages. We offer classes open to all students and teachers at the university as well as reading groups and other social activities. Our site can also be accessed in Latin, select the drop-down box at the top-right of the page!


Workshop on Latin and Ancient Greek Didactics
and ‘Reading Ancient Schoolroom’

The OALS, OL and Jesus college will be jointly running a two-day workshop. The first day will feature talks in English and Latin and on the second day, workshop participants will get to experience the ancient classroom for themselves, along with our traditional gustationes-style classes.

We currently offer in-person group classes to any student or teacher at the university. These range from beginner Latin and Greek to reading classes. All of these are taught in the active method, meaning plenty of speaking!
