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.
