LAT10100 Beginners' Latin II

Academic Year 2021/2022

This module is the second stage of an introductory course in Latin. Students will complete their study of Latin grammar and vocabulary, and read passages of continuous prose and verse from a variety of Latin authors with a view to acquiring fluency in the reading of unadapted Latin texts. The course also incorporates a study of the basics of ancient Roman culture and history through source material in the original Latin. The textbook is Latin via Ovid (Norma W. Goldman), supplemented by online learning activities.
