Latin Beginners 3

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

This class is a continuation of the Latin Intermediate course.

Reading 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.

WEA Hunter offers a wide variety of Lifestyle & Leisure courses at various locations throughout Newcastle and the Hunter Region.
Course enrolment must be accompanied by a fee; we are unable to hold places for people or accept deposits on Lifestyle courses. Once enrolment is completed students will receive a course confirmation either in writing or by email. This course confirmation constitutes a receipt.

Please check your confirmation letter to ensure you have the correct time, date and location of your course as well as any necessary requirements. There is a room directory located at each venue directing you to your classroom. Vending machines are located at both Laman & King street venues and parking fees will apply.

Please choose carefully as WEA Hunter does not issue refunds of fees paid except in circumstances where WEA Hunter cancels a course – in which case students are entitled to receive a full refund. Alternatively if a course cancels WEA Hunter will transfer the student into another course with no administration charge.
