Free, online semi-intensive course in Phoenician

The Oxford Faculty of Linguistics, Philology and Phonetics, in association with the Oxford Centre for Hebrew and Jewish Studies (OCHJS) and the Institute for Classical Studies (ICS) is offering a free, online semi-intensive course in Phoenician, which will take place on 8-13 April 2024.


The class will take place 2-4pm GMT, Monday to Saturday, with daily homework. All materials will be provided by the tutor (Dr Vladimir Olivero), and no prior knowledge of the language will be assumed.


The course is aimed primarily at graduate students who will use the language for academic purposes (which do not have to focus narrowly on dissertation work), but others are very welcome to apply. Some places are reserved in the first instance for Oxford students and staff, but we encourage applications from other UK universities, and if numbers permit we will be delighted to welcome participants from outside the UK as well. 


To apply, fill in this form by March 15, 2024. We will inform successful applicants shortly thereafter, and those studying for a degree will be asked to provide confirmation of support from their academic supervisor. For any questions, please write to
