This course, using Levels 3 and 4 of Tim Griffiths’s NSA Latin as the “textbook,” will continue the new, inductive approach to mastering Latin grammar and syntax begun in Part I. At the end of Part II, you should have a firm handle on all the standard grammatical forms of the Latin language, enabling you, with the aid of a lexicon, to read and translate (albeit slowly and with difficulty) most classical and ecclesiastical Latin texts for general comprehension. You will also possess a working vocabulary of over a thousand Latin words, with a focus on vocabulary found in the Vulgate and Latin theological texts. The course takes places over the course of 10 weeks, with a weekly 1.5 hr. online class along with at home lectures describing the grammar; expect 6 – 8 hours of homework a week.
The course will run for the 2021 Hillary Term (January 11-March 20).
