Latin Language and Culture, Intermediate

An intermediate reading course in Latin is combined with an exploration of Roman life and literature. Starting with a swift review of the basics of Latin grammar, we will aim to begin reading unadapted works of Roman literature by the end of the course. The set texts are, Lingua Latina Part 1: Familia Romana and Lingua Latina Part 2: Roma Aeterna by Hans Henning Orberg. These can be ordered online or in any bookshop. All other materials will be supplied by the tutor.
