CLA4120 - Introductory Latin B/3

6 points, SCA Band 1, 0.125 EFTSL

Undergraduate Faculty of Arts

Leader(s): Dr Jane Griffiths


Clayton Second semester 2009 (Day)


This unit provides CLA Honours students with the opportunity to continue their study of Latin. The unit is based on the CLA undergraduate Introductory Latin units, CLA1120/CLA2120/CLA3120, and 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.


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

  • will have a solid understanding of basic Latin grammar and syntax
  • will have a developing store of Latin Greek vocabulary
  • will be able to read adapted texts from Latin authors with some help in grammar and vocabulary
  • will have a sufficiently comprehensive and secure understanding of elementary grammar, vocabulary and syntax to enable them to continue studies of more advanced Latin.
