Latin Advanced 2

This is a continuation from Latin Advanced 1. 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.


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.


Please contact us about what textbook the tutor is using for this term.


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

  1. To develop, at an appropriate level, a competence in Latin.
  2. To read, understand, appreciate and make a personalresponse some of the literature in the original language.
  3. To acquire some understanding of the civilization within which the literature studied was produced.
  4. To develop a sensitive and an analytical approach to language by seeing English in relation to a language of very different structure and by observing the influence of the ancient language on our own.
