Autumn Short Course - 10 Sessions, Canterbury Christ Church University
Whether your classical Latin is languishing, moribund or non-existent, come and revive it! We shall begin with a general introduction to the language by way of the essential cases, verb forms, nouns and some elementary grammar.
This will help us to start reading some simple adapted texts, based on one of the comedies of Plautus. We shall be using the Cambridge University Press Reading Latin by Peter Jones and Keith Sidwell (2 vols.: Grammar, Vocabulary and Exercises; and Text).
After ten sessions, with care and diligence, your Latin should be progressing and your English vocabulary wider. Further study will be offered in the spring term. The tutor is a former teaching fellow of University College, London, and guided many beginners in Latin through the Classical Association Summer Schools.
