Improve your fluency in reading and translating Latin and gain a greater knowledge of the grammar. Based on the first edition of the Reading Latin (Cambridge University Press: 1986, 2 vols).


What is the course about?

The course aims to improve your fluency in reading and translating Latin, helping you gain a greater knowledge of grammar and vocabulary.

What will we cover?

We shall be using the first edition of the textbook Reading Latin (CUP: 1986, 2 vols), starting around Section 5F (please check with the tutor through the Classical Languages and Civilisations Department for the exact point to start at). Reading will be combined with grammar instruction and exercises on grammatical points.

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

- demonstrate knowledge of the subjunctive in main clauses;
- demonstrate knowledge of impersonal constructions;
- demonstrate knowledge of the future perfect indicative;
- demonstrate knowledge of the gerundives;
- demonstrate further knowledge of the use of the hexameter in epic poetry.

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

You should have already completed Latin 4 lower: Module 2, or have an equivalent experience. 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?

Whole class work and group work; translation and grammar exercises; tutor posing questions and answering questions raised by the students.

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

Textbook: Reading Latin, by Peter Jones and Keith Sidwell (CUP: 1986), 2 vols: 1. Grammar, Vocabulary and Exercises; 2. Text.

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

Latin 4 upper: module 1.
