Since September 2017 the Centre for Classical and Medieval Studies at Peking University has been offering standardised tests in Elementary Latin, Intermediate Latin and Elementary Greek. Behind this move was a firm belief that the promotion of Latin and Ancient Greek among students in ancient and medieval literature, history and philosophy would be best served by the creation of a standard for assessing proficiency in those two classical languages. Eager to continue on this path, we are pleased to announce tests in Elementary and Intermediate Latin and Greek taking place in May of 2019 at Peking University. The tests are open to students and young scholars from universities across China, including those in Taiwan and the Special Administrative Regions of Hong Kong and Macao. The tests in Elementary and Intermediate Latin are scheduled to take place on Saturday the 11th of May (both at the same time). The tests in Elementary and Intermediate Greek are scheduled for Sunday the 12th of May (both taking place at the same time). Further details regarding the tests will be sent to those who register their participation through email.

 

The Centre for Classical and Medieval Studies at Peking University will inform participants of their test results by letter.
