President of ARLT 2014-15

W. H. D. Rouse

Founder of ARLT

Founded in 1911 by W. H. D Rouse, the Association is run by and for teachers of Latin. The Association originally set out to “reform” the teaching of Latin  - hence the “R” in ARLT. Nowadays, the teaching of Latin by the Direct Method has all but gone, yet we retain our name, if only to remind us of our roots. You can read the history of ARLT in Latin here.

This site is available to everyone interested in the teaching of Latin and related subjects. You will only need to register if you want to access the pages specifically intended for practising teachers. The Association now provides a range of services, including:

  • Summer Schools
  • Refresher Days
  • Private Tutor listings and advertisements for Tutors
  • Teaching Materials - including the JACT teaching notes
  • Teaching Help
  • Audio recordings of GCSE and and A Level Texts
  • Links to many of the major  providers of Latin teaching
  • The ARLT BLOG and Message Board
