Latin: Summer Intensive Introductory Latin

Program(s): Sli Precollege, Sli Undergrad

*Taught Online*  Summer Intensive Introductory Latin offers a comprehensive introduction to Classical Latin language in 8 weeks. Through a daily mixture of synchronous and asynchronous activities, students learn new grammatical concepts and morphology, practice reading and translating increasingly complex Latin texts, and complete exercises in Latin to gain an active command of the language. Students will also read unadapted Latin from classical authors, including Caesar, Sallust, and Cicero. By the end of the summer Latin course, students will be thoroughly familiar with Latin idiom and sentence structure and will be able to proceed to reading courses in the language.

Course Considerations

Summer Introductory Latin is an intensive course that requires a full-time commitment on the part of the student, with assignments due and activities scheduled every day. It also expects that students will undertake independent review and memorization in the evenings.
