Beginning Latin

This course is offered as part of the Summer Latin Program at the Centre for Medieval Studies. For other Summer Courses, see Latin Level One and Latin Level Two.

Beginning Latin

19 May to 10 July 2020
2-hour sessions
Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday
10:30 a.m. – 12:30 p.m.

The instructor will be available regularly for consultation.
Textbook: Moreland and Fleischer, Latin: An Intensive Course. 

The book is available for purchase online.

An introductory intensive course for those with little or no previous exposure to Latin. You can’t expect to assimilate Latin grammar thoroughly or build an extensive vocabulary in just eight weeks, but those who successfully complete the course are adequately prepared to attend our Level One Latin class – that is, they should be able to score at least 30% on our Level One Latin examination in September.

Review Session

14 July to 30 July 2020
Tuesday and Thursday
10:30 a.m. – 12:30 p.m.
Lillian Massey Building, room 301

Following Beginning Latin, a three-week supplemental reading course will offer students an opportunity to consolidate their grasp of the language. Assignments will include selections from the Vulgate, the Gesta Romanorum, and other medieval texts of a similar level of difficulty. The supplemental course is open to those registered for Basic Latin with no additional tuition fee.
