DVRATE ET VOSMET REBVS SERVATE SECVNDIS
(Virg. Aen. I, 207)
Latin, Greek, Spanish, Italian, and German.
My name is Nicolás Lázaro and I received my PhD from the National University of Rosario (UNR, Argentina) on Medieval Philosophy (Thomas Aquinas). Born and raised in Argentina, I have studied abroad: Italy, USA, Brazil and Germany. I have completed many specialization courses on Classics (with the Polis Institute, the Academia Vivarium Novum, the Pontificio Istituto “Altioris Latinitatis”). My main scope is to teach Classics to read the Great Books of Western Civilization on their own language, without any translation.

Do you use the natural (spoken) method?
How would you describe your teaching style?
My teaching style is based on; (1) Directing and imitation: students will learn from the active and natural spoken method, imitating the teacher, describing pictures, learning poems and songs, etc. (2) Discussing and interaction: Reading in loud voice, ask and answer questions. I ALWAYS dedicate the first and the last 10-15 minutes to solve exercises. (3) Delegate tasks: solve exercises, write short texts, search and describe images (paints preferred), write an own grammar & content summary of the lessons.
