This September 23, 24, and 25, Evan Gardner and Willem Larsen will be holding a WAYK workshop at Wyoming Catholic College in Lander, Wyoming.
Believe it or not, Latin still has a living tradition of daily conversational vitality, as carried through the centuries in the church and monasteries. Latin is the official language of the Vatican, the sovereign catholic city-state in Rome. However, like many languages today, Latin is struggling, with a handful of fluent speakers left. We have partnered with Nancy Llewellyn of Wyoming Catholic College to bring WAYK to the campus and see if we can’t create a vital Latin speech community in Lander, WY, where the WCC campus resides. Can you imagine – the two centers of fluent daily conversational life in Latin: the Vatican, and Lander, WY?
Well, we can imagine it, and over this next year we will do everything we can to make it a reality. Contact Nancy Llewellyn at WCC for more information: firstname.lastname@example.org.
