Minimus is a unique Latin course for younger children. It's based on a real family who lived at Vindolanda in 100AD: Flavius, the fort commander, his wife Lepidina, their three children, assorted household slaves, their cat Vibrissa - and Minimus the mouse!

salvete - exspectatissimi estis! (hello - you are very welcome)


Primary Schools - have you considered using Latin as your designated language? Minimus can help pupils with literacy. There's still time to choose the mouse!
