Reading Latin Group: Jenny Morris

"These sessions are for those who have a knowledge of Latin at an intermediate level (or higher) - that is, about GCSE level. We shall explore a selection of prose and verse texts together as our main activity, with opportunities for guidance on individual reading for a short period each week to allow for differences in experience of reading Latin. The aims above all are to enjoy Latin literature, and also to extend participants' ability to read and appreciate Latin. Texts will be provided, and consist of selections of extracts, thematically grouped. Those considering joining are welcome to contact the tutor (via the REC) for guidance about their level of Latin and/or to be given information about the texts selected.  "
