Latin Beginners Consolidation

This continuation course from Latin Beginners 4 is for any student wishing to consolidate the verbal system and other minor grammatical features, for the purposes of reading and understanding the literature of an ancient culture with at least approximately 80 hours of prior knowledge needed. In addition, students may begin to tackle simple extracts from original Latin literature, both from prose and poetry. Apart from linguistic work, students will explore in greater depth, how a knowledge of Latin can help their understanding of modern institutions, including political, religious, social and philosophical thought.

This class will be delivered online via the online platform Zoom. Enrolling students need to ensure they have an email, a reliable internet connection, microphone/speakers and access to a tablet, smartphone or computer. Classes will consist of a minimum of 1.5 hours virtual class time, together with 30 minutes worth of work to be completed independently. You will be able to contact your tutor by email or phone to ask for guidance and feedback on this work. In addition tutors may set additional homework.
