The TA will be available for regular consultation. This course is intended for students who have already passed the Level I Latin Examination and have a thorough knowledge of Latin grammar and a basic working vocabulary. It prepares students for the Level II 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. Coursework includes regular sight passages and prepared reading of difficult Medieval Latin. As with the Level I 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). This course serves to refresh students’ knowledge of grammar and/or gain additional experience of readings texts in preparation for Medieval Latin Exams.
