What else do I need to know? Is there anything I need to provide?
The textbook for this course is Henry Cullen & John Taylor "Latin to GCSE Part 2" (Bloomsbury: ISBN 10 - 1780934416). It is available from Amazon (£12.69) , Blackwells (£12.47) , Waterstones (£14.99) and other booksellers. It may also be available secondhand.
Course aim:
This course is for those who have learnt some Latin and would like to take it further or refresh very rusty Latin. The level is equivalent to beginning of the fourth term of a two-year GCSE course.
Course description:
Latin is everywhere - in inscriptions, in textbooks for medicine, law and botany, in church liturgy and the records for family history. It is the ancestor of many European languages and by various routes has supplied about half the vocabulary of English. Above all, it is the language in which some of world's greatest literature was written and its poetry, oratory, philosophy and even novels have influenced many writers over the centuries and continue to do so today. If you are interested in any of the above, or simply enjoy a challenge, then Latin is for you. This course is for people who have studied some Latin (however long ago!) and would like to take their studies further. You will continue to study the grammar of the Latin language and the the context in which it was written: the city of Rome and the Roman Empire.
By the end of the course I will be able to:
1. form and use the ablative absolute
2. understand what it means for a verb to be deponent and how to form and translate deponent verbs
3. understand how to recognise, form and translate indirect statements, using a variety of infinitives
4. know how to form and use the pronouns quidam and alter
5. translate simple sentences from English into Latin using the grammar learnt in this course (optional)
How will I learn?

We expect you to attend your classroom sessions and make time to do any required learning activities on your own.

The WEA tutor will use a range of teaching and learning activities and encourage you and the group to be actively involved in your learning. Your tutor will use tasks to see how you are learning, which may include quizzes, question and answer, small projects, discussion, written or practical work. Your tutor will give you feedback on your learning and progress.

WEA Canvas online learning area

Whether your course is face to face or online, the WEA uses its online learning area, called Canvas, to support your learning.
