LT1001 Elementary Latin 1

SCOTCAT credits:20
Academic year(s):2017/8
SCQF Level 7
Planned timetable:3.00 pm

This module provides a systematic introduction to the Latin language, concentrating on morphology, vocabulary, and basic syntax, and will enable students to read simplified Latin texts and translate sentences from Latin into English and vice versa. It is complemented by LT1002, and will thus give access to Latin at higher levels, but it may also be taken by students whose main interests lie in other areas, such as histories, foreign languages and English. It is also suitable for students who have taken some Latin previously, but not to Higher or A-Level, or who have taken Higher or A-Level Latin on reduced time.
