Beginners’ Latin by Zoom

Dr. Birgitta Hoffmann

This course offers you an introduction to the Latin language and its highly logical grammar. The course aims to get you proficient at reading your first genuine Latin text at the end of 10 weeks and along the way enjoy this beautiful language but offers you the chance to continue beyond that to be able to read complex Latin writers.

We will be using as our text book ‘Minimus: Starting out in Latin’, to which further exercises will be added. This is originally a book for primary school children, but is certainly great fun to use as an adult as well.

Teaching methods:

The course will be taught as a weekly Zoom session, where we explore aspects of the Latin language and practice sentences to translate, as well as review your homework. You will then be set a series of exercises to practice with over the next week.

The course can be taught as Latin/English.

Requirements: It would be useful if you had a English-Latin dictionary. This can, however, be found online at various locations.
