About this course

Main focus of the course is on translating selected texts at appropriate levels from Latin into English. The course will will use the Cambridge Latin Course Book II as its basis, with other texts taken from classical mythology or literature. In addition to translation students will study Latin grammar as used in the texts, and will also study relevant episodes from Roman history and aspects of cultural life relating to the text materials.
