Reading Latin 2 (LATN2621)

UNIT OF STUDY

This unit builds on the knowledge and skills acquired in LATN2620, enabling senior-level students to read more complex Latin texts. It concentrates particularly on reading skills and the syntax of the sentence, while also introducing further grammatical concepts and constructions. Grammatical knowledge is reinforced by translation from and into Latin, while reading skills are further consolidated through the study of a wide variety of longer extracts from Latin prose and verse texts.
