Level Two Latin
4 July – 11 August 2023
90 minute sessions
Monday through Friday
10:30 a.m. – 12:00 p.m.
*In-person at Lillian Massey
Note: the University will be closed on Monday 3 July.
The TA will be available for regular consultation. This course is intended for students who have already passed the Level One Latin examination and have a thorough knowledge of Latin grammar and a basic working vocabulary. It prepares students for the Level Two Latin examination; a pass at that level indicates that a student is fluent in Latin, has a thorough command of grammar (both accidence and syntax), can handle complex sentences, has a wide vocabulary, and is able to use Latin for research purposes efficiently and accurately. Class work includes regular sight passages and prepared reading of difficult Medieval Latin. As with the Level One Latin course, we endeavour to select texts which are representative of different periods and a wide range of subject matter (e.g., works of Augustine, Notker Balbulus, Bernard of Clairvaux, Dante, Petrarch, Boccaccio, Boethius, and others of similar difficulty).
A Level One Latin Exam Pass is required to register. (Note: if you pass the Level Two Latin examination in April, you’re unlikely to benefit from these courses.)
