Latin Beginners 3

This is an expanded continuation from Latin Beginners 2 to use authentic Roman texts to learn basic Latin grammar and to provide a firsthand experience of Roman culture. The closeness of inspection in reading Latin fosters precision in the use of words. It also provides a model for careful reading and writing of English. The two hour format for each session of this class will allow an hour of language study, followed by an hour looking at some aspect of Roman history and culture. Even a modest acquaintance with Latin automatically extends your English vocabulary.

TEXT: Oxford Latin Course: Part II (2nd ed.), Oxford University Press, 2006.

By the end of this course, students should be able to:

  1. Read and understand a Latin text of the appropriate level.
  2. Demonstrate the skills, vocabulary and attitudes required for further study of Latin.

IMPORTANT: Textbook cost is not included in the course fee. In the event of a course being cancelled WEA cannot be held responsible for the purchase of any textbooks. We therefore suggest you purchase your textbooks closer to the time of the course commencing.

If you are a new WEA Student and enrol into a language class and subsequently find that you are at the wrong level (whether too high or too low), you are permitted to transfer into another more suitable class at no additional cost, provided that the request is made within the first two classes and is in writing from your tutor directly to the Education Manager. After that point, an administration fee of $30 will apply.
