Course description

This beginning Latin course is designed for those who have had no previous instruction in classical Latin. The course covers the equivalent of one semester of college-level Latin and focuses on the acquisition of fundamental grammar syntax and vocabulary. By the end of the course students are able to read with the help of a dictionary short continuous passages from such authors as Caesar Cicero Virgil and Ovid. Students who successfully complete the course are equipped to enter into the equivalent of a second-semester sequence of college-level Latin in the following fall semester.
