What is the course about?

This course aims to build on the grammatical structures for reading and translating Latin, which have been acquired in Latin 2 Module 1. The course is based on Reading Latin (Cambridge University Press).

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 be following the textbook Reading Latin - a textbook designed for adults learners, with texts based on original Latin sources. We will start at section 4, where longer and more complex sentence structures will be encountered.

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

- read and write Latin sentences of intermediate complexity
- have some insight into the derivation of English words
- have some insight into the world of ancient Rome
- demonstrate good knowledge of the indicative tenses of Latin verbs
- demonstrate good knowledge of the declensions of nouns and adjectives.

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

You should have attended Latin 2 Module 1 or have equivalent knowledge. 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. Please look at the rest of the course 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?

This class will follow the traditional approach but will involve a high level of student interaction with group translation work. There will be instruction on Latin grammar, grammatical exercises, and simple translation – combined with pronunciation work, and listening to and reading the texts aloud. Students are expected to participate in oral classroom activities and to do approx. 2 hours' homework per week.

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

Bring writing material.
