What is the course about?

The course is designed to revise and build on your existing knowledge of Latin. We shall be using the textbook Reading Latin by Jones & Sidwell CUP second edition. Reading will be combined with grammar instruction and exercises on grammatical points, and we will be continuing at the start of the Term from Section 1C in the course-book.

This is a live online course. You will need:
- Internet connection. The classes work best with Chrome.
- A computer with microphone and camera is best (e.g. a PC/laptop/iMac/MacBook), or a tablet/iPad/smart phone/iPhone if you don't have a computer.
- Earphones/headphones/speakers.
We will contact you with joining instructions before your course starts.

What will we cover?

We will continue to study the conjugation of verbs and the declension of nouns and adjectives; and continue reading adapted Latin texts from ancient authors, including Plautus.

What will I achieve?
By the end of this course you should be able to...

have some understanding of:
- Present Imperatives
- Present Indicative and Imperative of the verb to be
- ‘my’ and ‘your’ and ‘I’ and ‘you’
- Prepositions for ‘from’ and ‘out of’.

What level is the course and do I need any particular skills?

You should have completed Latin 1 Module 1 or have an equivalent knowledge. As the course is taught in English, please read the outline carefully to decide if you may benefit from support with your English skills to help you take part fully in this class.

How will I be taught, and will there be any work outside the class?

The course consists of translation, grammar instructions and grammar exercises with a high level of student interaction (individual, pair and group work). Students are expected to do the homework regularly and participate in oral classroom activities. Homework will require approx. 1-2 hours per week.

Are there any other costs? Is there anything I need to bring?

Reading Latin: Grammar and Exercises (ISBN 9781107632264);
Reading Latin: Text & Vocabulary (ISBN 9781107618701);

An e-book version is also available.
We recommend you purchase the book after the first session of the course, when you are happy that the course is suitable for you.

When I've finished, what course can I do next?

Latin 1: module 3.

Andrew David

I graduated in Classics and trained as a Language and Classics teacher at Pembroke College Oxford and at Exeter University. I have forty years' experience as an English Language teacher and Programme Manager in Further Education. Since 2000 I have worked as a Tour Guide for English Language students at the Victoria and Albert Museum and the British Museum. At the British Museum I also offer workshops for children on Ancient Greek and Egyptian Life, and I have taught on the Museum's Iraq Emergency Programme training Iraqi Archaeologists. I have taught Classics in Primary and Secondary schools and privately since 1983, and I have been a Tutor in Classics at City Lit since 2012. At City Lit I teach Latin and Greek classes both at Keeley Street and as part of the City Lit's partnership with the British Museum. I am currently leading a project to record an audio facility for the Cambridge University Press 2016 edition of Reading Latin - the course-book used in most City Lit Latin courses. I try to include speaking and listening work in my classes, thus following the students' stated preference for hearing how we think Latin and Greek were spoken in Classical times.
