If they have not already done so, students begin exercises in reading comprehension using both confected texts as well as passages from Latin literature.


Learning outcomes

On completion of the unit students will have:

  1. An understanding of the concepts of Latin grammar covered in this unit.
  2. Knowledge of a wider Latin vocabulary and grammar, including syntax.
  3. The ability to understand, and explain, longer passages of Latin.
  4. The ability to translate more complex texts from Latin to English and vice versa.
  5. The ability to participate effectively and confidently in group work and practical exercises in tutorials.



Students may enrol in LAN102 if they have completed LAN101. Otherwise they may only enrol if they have a sufficiently advanced, and demonstrable, knowledge of Latin sufficient for this unit.
