  • Overview

    This introductory course continues to acquaint students with the basic rudiments of the Latin language and progresses on to the uses of the subjunctive. The course divides in two sections: an introduction to basic grammar (revision of the cases, declensions and introduces the subjunctive tenses) and "The demise of the Roman Republic", in which grammar is revised and further grammatical practice given through modified texts of Cicero and Sallust. Two works are featured: In Verrem, Catilinae coniuratio. In order to read Latin with confidence students will be encouraged to understand it word-by-word and phrase-by-phrase in the order that it is written. A large number of exercises are therefore devoted to this end. On occasion, this course may require exploration of Rome in situ or through co-curricular public lectures.
