Course overview

The course is aimed at a wide range of students with a general interest in Latin. This course requires one year of previous study, with at least 45 hours of tuitions and at least 90 hours of independent study. Prospective students need to have a clear understanding of the concepts of declensions, verb person endings, the present, imperfect, perfect and pluperfect indicative of the verb, the imperative and infinitive forms of the verb. The students must be able to recognise and use high frequency vocabulary for the house, the family, the town, jobs and everyday activities; must be able to recognise, ask and answer questions (who, what, where, when, why). The Cambridge Latin Course volumes I and II provide a guideline of useful content and exercises.
