This course aims to introduce undergraduate students to the Latin language and provide you with the basic tools to communicate in that language. The aim is to enable you to improve both their ability to communicate and your linguistic competence in Latin. While a balance of receptive (reading, listening) and productive (speaking, writing) skills are developed through communicative classes and self‐study, the emphasis of this course will weigh more heavily on the reading skills. The course will give an insight into the culture, literature and society of Ancient Rome. How to study a language and various transferable skills are also part of the course.
By the end of this course you should be able to:
1. speak coherently with sufficient fluency and accuracy on subjects familiar to them,
2. write basic sentences using the present, past simple and the future tense,
3. apply acquired vocabulary in speaking and writing on topics of everyday life,
4. read basic texts, especially some of the classic Latin epic poems.
