CLA4110 - Introductory Latin A/3

6 points, SCA Band 1, 0.125 EFTSL

Undergraduate Faculty of Arts

Leader(s): Dr Jane Griffiths

Offered

Clayton First semester 2009 (Day)

Synopsis

This unit provides CLA Honours students with the opportunity to learn Latin. The unit is based on the CLA undergraduate Introductory Latin units, CLA1110/CLA2110/CLA3110, but introduces extra material to supplement the student's enhanced learning. The unit aims to develop the student's language capability to the point that s/he is able to read unadapted texts with significant help in grammar and vocabulary. It is designed to give students a sufficiently comprehensive introduction to Latin that they can continue further study to Intermediate and Advanced levels at post-graduate level.

Objectives

By the completion of this unit, it is expected that students:

  • will have a basic understanding of Latin grammar and syntax;
  • will have a developing store of Latin vocabulary;
  • will be able to read simplified/adapted texts from Roman authors, with help in grammar and vocabulary;
  • will have a growing understanding of elementary grammar, vocabulary and syntax sufficient to enable them to continue studies in Introductory Latin B.
