Synopsis

The unit is designed to further students' reading skills gained in ATS1267, to the point where authentic Latin texts may be read and enjoyed. Students continue to acquire grammatical and syntactical knowledge of Latin, while reading increasingly authentic texts by authors such as Virgil, Cicero and Seutonius. Learning is reinforced by weekly grammar exercises and vocabulary tests, and the unit serves in part as an introduction to the literary and cultural heritage of Rome.

Outcomes

On completion of this unit, students will have achieved:

  1. A sufficient knowledge of Latin grammar to allow most Latin texts to be approached successfully;
  2. A general active vocabulary in Classical Latin;
  3. Reading skills in Latin to allow most Latin text to be approached successfully;
  4. An greaterunderstanding of the historical and cultural context of Classical Latin, especially the Republican period.

Assessment

Two 1-hour Exams: 60%
Class tests (half of which will focus on the cultural understanding of Republican Rome): 40%
