COURSE OUTLINE

The course consolidates knowledge from material studied in earlier levels based on Chapters 50-54 of the above text covering the following new grammar topics:

  • nouns and adjectives: gerunds and gerundives
  • syntax and other: gerundives of obligation; predicative dative; relative pronouns with the subjunctive; uses of ut.

The course then studies a selection of classical texts from the Oxford Latin Reader in class, reviewing the grammatical constructions and syntax, and discussing the texts in their cultural and historical perspective.

PLANNED LEARNING OUTCOMES

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

  1. translate and explain the use of and difference between the gerund and the gerundive.
  2. recognise and translate the various use of the conjunction ut
  3. translate short unedited passages of original Latin authors
  4. discuss the literary and stylistic choices made by different authors
  5. explain the relevance of the cultural and historical context on the style and content of the selected texts.

LANGUAGE CLASS TRANSFER POLICY

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.
