This is a live online course. You will need:

We will contact you with joining instructions before your course starts.
What will we cover?
We shall be using the textbook Reading Latin 2 vols, starting around Section 2D, and reading adaptations of Plautus' Comedies (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 fourth and fifth declension;
- demonstrate knowledge of the present indicative deponent;
- demonstrate knowledge of the demonstrative adjectives/pronouns.
What level is the course and do I need any particular skills?
You should have studied Latin for one year. 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. About 2 hours' homework per week.
Are there any other costs? Is there anything I need to bring?
Textbook: Reading Latin, 2 vols. By Peter Jones & Keith Sidwell (CUP). 2 vol. Some copies available in the City Lit Library.
When I've finished, what course can I do next?
