Latin - Intermediate

This course has no current classes. Please join the waiting list.

This class is a continuation of the “Learn Latin” beginners course.

Readin of a novel written entirely in Latin (Hans Ørberg’s Lingua Latina Per Se Illustrata – Familia Romana) will be continued. The novel was written specifically for those learning Latin and can be read from beginning to end, even by very beginners. The vocabulary and grammar become gradually more detailed as new concepts are introduced. The text tells the story of a Roman family in the 2nd century A.D.; numerous illustrations complement the text and aid the descriptions of customs, every day objects, buildings and furnishings.

The course will also cover briefly ancient Roman culture through the reading of short texts (in English translation) by classical authors, such as Horace.
