Our approach

This course aims to take learner from a basic level towards independent reading of authentic texts in Latin. Reading skills are developed by systematically working through short texts and focusing on the recognition of key grammatical structures (verbs, tenses, sentence patterns and word order, negation, nouns, connectors, pronouns, adjectives, prepositions, the passive, idioms, etc.). You will also develop dictionary skills and practise reading strategies to interpret and translate texts in Latin.

Students will be encouraged to seek opportunities to learn and practise outside the classroom taking advantage of learning resources provided by tutors and the programme. The group size is limited to 12 students and planned to allow intensive interactive practice with individual feedback and advice on progress.
