Available Classes

This continuation course from Latin Beginners 5 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 100 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. 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.

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.


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.
