Laura Pooley, Latinist
During her time at Oxford Laura spent an intercalating year in Rome, where she studied Latin with Reggie Foster, simultaneously attending the First, Second, Third and Fourth Experiences. Laura took copious notes on both the class work and the Ludi, which have since provided the backbone of her teaching. Laura has taught Latin Language from beginners’ language to advanced level reading classes at Nottingham, Oxford and currently Cambridge University. She also teaches Latin to schoolchildren in East Anglia, covering both GCSE and A Level.
She is currently in the process of producing a book of 100 Lessons and accompanying Ludi covering the entire Language, based scrupulously on Reggie’s method but re-envisioned for a young, modern and sometimes recalcitrant audience!
Laura Pooley, Opera singer
