This class is an opportunity to complete and consolidate foundational knowledge and skills continually called on for reading Latin. Increasingly, we will integrate them dynamically in connected reading of original texts. By focusing on grammar and analysis, you will extend your understanding of how language functions systematically: the insight you develop working between Latin and English will strengthen your acuity with every language you use. At the same time, we will also begin to look at Latin texts as literature and as vehicles of cultural knowledge - where even more fun begins.

Our work will pursue four main aims or Learning Outcomes (as well as aiming to enjoy them):
