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

Level Two Latin

06 July to 14 August 2020
90 minute sessions
Monday through Friday
10:30 a.m. – 12:00 p.m.
Lillian Massey Building, room 310

The instructor will be available regularly for consultation.For students who have already passed our Level One Latin examination and already have a thorough knowledge of Latin grammar and a basic working vocabulary. This course prepares you to take our Level Two Latin examination; a pass at that level indicates that a student is fluent in Latin, is completely sound on grammar (both accidence and syntax), can handle complex sentences, has a wide vocabulary, and can be trusted to use Latin for research purposes efficiently and without error. Class work includes regular sight passages and prepared reading of difficult Medieval Latin. As with the Level One Latin course, we try to make choices representative of different periods and a wide range of subject matter. (Typical texts might include works by Augustine, Notker Balbulus, Bernard of Clairvaux, Dante, Petrarch, Boccaccio, Boethius and others of similar difficulty).

Enrolment Restriction

A Level One Latin Exam Pass is required to register. (Note: if you take and pass our Level Two Latin examination in April, you’re unlikely to benefit from these courses.)
