This intensive beginning Latin course is designed for those who have had little or no previous instruction in classical Latin and are highly motivated to make accelerated progress in the language. The course covers the equivalent of the first two semesters of college-level Latin. It focuses on the acquisition of fundamental grammar syntax and vocabulary so that by the end of the course students should be able to read with the help of a dictionary continuous passages from such authors writing in classical Latin as Caesar Cicero Virgil and Ovid. Those who successfully complete this course should be equipped to enter into the equivalent of a second-year sequence of college-level Latin in the following fall semester.
