Latin Intermediate 1

This is a continuation from Latin Beginners courses. 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 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.
