This is a continuation from Latin Elementary 4. 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. Each meeting will look at some aspects of Roman history and culture, in the context of the study of the language. Even a modest acquaintance with Latin automatically extends your English vocabulary.

  • The subjunctive mood, indirect statements and questions
  • Gerunds and gerundives, result clauses and purpose clauses
  • The life of the poet Horace from the death of Cicero until his own death


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.
