Continue to study Latin grammar and improve your fluency in reading and translating.


What is the course about?

This course aims to improve your fluency in reading and translating Latin, and to help you gain a greater knowledge of grammatical structures.

What will we cover?

We shall be using the textbook Reading Latin (2 vols), starting around the end of Section 2C, and reading adaptations of Plautus' Comedies (please check with the tutor through the Classical Languages and Civilisations Department for the exact point to start at). Reading will be combined with grammar instruction and exercises on grammatical points.

What will I achieve?
By the end of this course you should be able to...

- demonstrate knowledge of future indicative deponent;
- demonstrate knowledge of perfect tense of deponent verb;
- demonstrate knowledge of semi-deponent verbs;
- demonstrate knowledge of demonstrative pronouns and adjectives;
- demonstrate knowledge of comparative and superlative adjectives/adverbs.

What level is the course and do I need any particular skills?

You should have studied Latin for one year. As this course is taught in English, you should be able to follow verbal and written instructions in English and also take part in class and group discussions on readings.

How will I be taught, and will there be any work outside the class?

Whole class work and some group work. Translation, grammar instruction, grammatical exercises. About 2 hours homework per week.

Are there any other costs? Is there anything I need to bring?

Reading Latin (Second Edition 2016): Grammar and Exercises (ISBN 9781107632264); Text and Vocabulary (ISBN 9781107618701); and Reading Latin: an Independent Study Guide (ISBN- ISBN: 9781107615601). A limited number of these textbooks are available in the Build Student Centre and Library.

When I've finished, what course can I do next?

Latin 2: Module 2.

Reviews below are by students who have attended this course, regardless of the course teacher. Please be aware you may not be booking onto a course with the same teacher.

The set books are expensive and not particularly easy to use both because of their number, weight and size and the way the course is constructed. However, the tutors are good and helpful but in my experience there has been a fair degree of churn. It would be ideal to have the same tutor each term.

I've just finished the level 2 course and would thoroughly recommend it to anyone who has completed level one or who has the background knowledge from elsewhere. The tutor was enthusiastic and very good at explaining the complexities of Latin and testing how well we had absorbed it! To get the most out of this course you do need to be prepared to do some homework, but the study of Latin is very rewarding.
