We will contact you with joining instructions before your course starts.

What will we cover?

We will use Reading Latin, by Peter Jones and Keith Sidwell (2 volumes) and then move on to other texts suggested by the tutor. The exact starting point will be confirmed on the first session of the course. Grammar will be accompanied by the reading of texts by Latin authors.

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

- demonstrate a solid knowledge of complex grammar
- read and translate Latin texts with fluency and confidence
- appreciate the themes, language and style of the texts read.

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

The course is suitable for those who have studied Latin for approximately 4 years or have an equivalent knowledge (A Level or first year of a university course).

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. 2-3 hours per week.
