What will we cover?

The course continues from Latin 4 lower Module 1, and is designed to revise and build on your existing knowledge of Latin. We will continue reading adaptations of original Latin literary texts from ancient authors, 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 a solid knowledge of grammar
- read and translate Latin texts with fluency and confidence

- have a deeper understanding of the world of ancient Rome.

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

The course is suitable for those who have studied Latin for 3/4 years or have an equivalent knowledge. As this 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, check the resources uploaded on Google Classroom and participate in oral classroom activities. Homework will require approx. 2-3 hours per week.

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