LATN 102-001: Latin II

Spring Semester 2020

'From small beginnings...': Hut urn and grave goods, Iron Age tomb, Forum Museum, Rome, photo J. Long

Mastering the fundamentals of Latin yields great rewards. You'll become able to read magnificent literature in its original glory. You'll build a new basis for understanding language - Latin itself, and languages related to it, but also more broadly how speaking and listening and writing and reading communities map worlds with words. Through Latin and the uses ancient Romans made of it, you will see insiders' perspectives on literature, history, and culture. Your own competences will grow.

Our work will aim at five main Learning Outcomes (in addition to the fun of learning):
