This is a continuation from Latin Intermediate 3. 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.


TEXT: Oxford Latin Course: Part III (2nd ed.), Oxford University Press, 2006.


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 personal response 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.


IMPORTANT: Textbook cost is not included in the course fee. In the event of a course being cancelled WEA cannot be held responsible for the purchase of any textbooks. We therefore suggest you purchase your textbooks closer to the time of the course commencing.
