Description

What is the course about?

What will we cover?

The course aims to introduce you to the language or remind you of what you have forgotten if you are rusty.

What will I achieve?

We shall be using the textbook Reading Latin, starting at Section 2. Reading will be combined with grammar instruction and grammatical exercises. We shall be studying the conjugation of verbs, the declension of nouns and adjectives.

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

This course is suitable if you have already completed Latin 1: Module 2 or have an equivalent level of the language. As this course is taught in English, you should be able to follow verbal and written instructions in English and also take part in class and group discussions on readings.

Whole class work and group work; translation and grammar exercises; tutor posing questions and answering questions raised by the students. About 2 hours' homework per week.

Tutor Biographies
Judith Rice

Judith has been teaching Classics (and other subjects) to both adults and children for over 10 years, and before that worked as a teacher of English as a Foreign Language, as a journalist, and in charities. She has taught at the Open University, Royal Holloway, and Birkbeck and is currently Head of Classics at a school in North London, and finds the similarities and difference sbetween adult and school education both challenging and fascinating. Having returned to formal education as a mature student herself, to pursue postgraduate work in Greek cultural and intellectual history, she has a strong commitment to continuing education. She has degrees from Oxford University and Royal Holloway, University of London and is a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy. Judith's love of ancient language, literature, philosophy, and archaeology arises from an overridng interest in ideas, and in the ways that we can learn about how people have thought in different times and places.
