Latin I (12.30-1.30): Jenny Morris

"This course is for intermediate to advanced students of Latin. We follow the Cambridge Latin Course, supplemented by additional resources, and shall begin in the Autumn term with Book V. By this stage we shall be able to read a range of unadapted original Latin texts, so that in addition to learning new grammatical structures and enlarging their vocabulary, participants will be able to experience the delights of Latin literature. Some of the participants will have worked through the first three books in the Cambridge Latin Course in previous REC sessions, but newcomers will be made very welcome, and are urged to contact Jenny to discuss their level of knowledge. Opportunities for formal assessment and qualifications are made available, but are certainly not compulsory, as this is intended to be Latin for pleasure!"
