This unit provides the essential linguistic foundation to the study of the literature, culture, history and long legacy of the Latin-speaking world ruled by Rome. No previous knowledge of any foreign language is assumed and all grammatical concepts encountered will be explained. The unit introduces the basics of Latin through the study of grammar and, using a wide variety of short and longer readings from a range of Roman authors, provides an introduction to Latin literature.
