This unit consolidates and builds on the knowledge and skills acquired in previous units. In this unit, if they have not already done so, students complete the formal study of the Latin language. Students are guided to apply the knowledge acquired throughout the course in the reading of longer extracts from Latin authors of prose and verse. Students learn how to read Latin poetry with attention to the metre.

a) An understanding of the concepts of Latin grammar covered in this unit.
