Second-Year Latin, Part 1 (LATIN 051) or equivalent.


As students continue to expand their Latin vocabulary, they will study the subjunctive verb, irregular verbs, gerunds and gerundives, and the many uses of the ablative and dative cases. The study of Latin will also improve English vocabulary. Through translation, students will travel with two fictional young Roman boys to Greece. This course also allows students to explore Roman history. When they complete this course, students should be ready to begin studying the writings of ancient Romans. This is the fourth course in a four-part Latin series (LATIN 041, LATIN 043, LATIN 051, and LATIN 053) and is a continuation of Second-Year Latin, Part 1 (LATIN 051).
