The Latin Programme - Via Facilis is a registered charity that aims to tackle the growing problem of illiteracy amongst primary school children. We improve English literacy in State Primary Schools in Greater London through the study of Latin.
By the end of a year of Latin programming, pupils of all levels come to understand sophisticated grammatical structures, their meanings, and the patterns repeated across several languages. When students learn Latin, they focus on two basic aspects: reading and writing. Latin requires them to account for everything, which in turn requires them to account for everything in English.
