4) June 18-22 -- Latin In A Week in Phoenix, AZ. "If you are the kind of person who would rather run up stairs than walk and you want to learn a classical language then these courses are for you. Learning a language is hard work. There is no getting around it. But that doesn't mean you have to stretch it out over a year or more. Just like tackling a staircase you can choose to reduce the pain by taking it slow, or you can finish hard work in a hurry and enjoy the vista at the top all the sooner. Get all the basics of Latin grammar under your belt in one week , with Latin In A Week."
