The Romans did not have a formal system of education and there were no state schools. The children of very rich people had private tuition at home. For other children teachers set up their own classes for a fee. They held the classes where they could, including in the back of shops, separated from the rest of the shop by just a curtain, and in the street. The children of those who could afford some education went to classes until the age of 10-11 and learnt to read and write and basic maths. These elementary classes were run by a teacher called litterator. Children of people who could afford it went to better classes and continued on to the classes run by the grammaticus from the age of 9 to 12 until the age of 14-15. They improved their writing, learnt oration, expressive poetic reading and poetic analysis. Pupils were expected to have some knowledge of spoken and written Greek and classes were run in both languages.

A small number of children went on to study with the rhetor. They studied rhetoric, which was important to become a lawyer or a politician. These studies came in two branched deliberative oratory, in which the pupils learned the skills for political debate, and judicial oratory, which was to undertake a career as a lawyer.
