This is a full-year course on the fundamentals of the Latin language. We focus throughout on learning grammar and vocabulary, and we regularly incorporate selections from literature, inscriptions, and other sources. Over time, we gradually increase the emphasis on reading selections from Latin poetry (e.g., Ovid’s Metamorphoses) and prose (e.g., Piny’s Letters).
