Latin Language Course - Beginnersonline course
This is based on the direct method of Hans Orberg, developed in his textbook – Familia Romana. The direct method implies that Latin will be the language used at the course almost exclusively, ensuring a complete immersion in the Latin language and realities. The purpose of the lessons is to cover the very basic level of Latin – the five declinations of the Latin noun and pronoun and indicative and imperative of the verb in the present tense. The lessons will also cover singular and plural number; interrogative particles; enclitic particles; present indicative; personal, interrogative, demonstrative, and relative pronouns; interrogative sentences; imperative; prepositions; locative; active and passive voice; declinations; the roman calendar; modal verbs etc. The course comprises of ten four hours long meetings, for a total of forty instruction hours.
The course will be held 5 days a week, for two weeks, with 4 instruction hours per day, for a total of 40 course hours. The final hours of the course will be decided together with all participants and the instructor, once the enrolment period is over, so that it may accommodate all participants.
This course is designed for beginners, though previous knowledge of the language is welcomed.
By the end of the course students should be able to read and understand simple Latin texts and phrases.
