Latin Preparation for Teachers and Parents

Are you a parent/teacher who would wishes you had an opportunity to learn Latin?  Are you a Latin teacher that wishes you had time to go back and take some graduate courses?  Well, your wish has been granted.  Several university classics programs offer summer courses.  Here are a couple of excellent programs I have been made aware of recently.  Check your area college or university to see what they might be offering.  Some programs allow adults to audit a course for only a small fee without actually enrolling in the college.  If you find a good program, post a comment and let us know!
