What is the course about?

This course is designed to extend your fluency in reading and translating Latin sentences and to give you a greater knowledge of grammatical structures. We will use “Reading Latin”, by Peter Jones and Keith Sidwell (2 volumes), starting around Section 3B.

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 cover grammatical structures including future participles, the use of the dative and ablative case, and the comparison of adverbs. We will also continue reading adapted prose texts dealing with Rome’s early history and its wars with Carthage.

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

- demonstrate good knowledge of the participles
- become confident in the use of cases
- demonstrate good knowledge of the comparison of adjectives and adverbs
- have some insights into the derivation of English words
- demonstrate some knowledge on the world of ancient Rome.

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

This course is for students who have completed Latin 2: module 1 at City Lit or have studied Latin for over a year. 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?
