PXBB Tuesdays 1400-1600 weekly from 30th April (5 sessions)
Convener: Carole Walton
Tutor: Roger Murray
For background grammar, the class will have moved onto Book 2 of a three-part course called “So you Really want to Learn Latin” by N.R.R. Oulton, published by Galore Park Publishing, first published in 1999 - ISBN: 978 1 902984 01 8. We will also have moved onto “Ecce Romani 3 – Home and School”, published by Oliver & Boyd, (2nd Edition) 1982 – ISBN 0-05-003467 7). Thirdly, we shall continue with “Short Stories in Latin” by Philip Dunlop, published by Cambridge University Press, ISBN 978-0-521-31592.
In an informal and friendly atmosphere, the course will combine ongoing revision of basic grammar, covered in the last academic year, with more advanced study of grammar and vocabulary. Additionally each session will, as before, examine varied aspects of Roman culture and history, and their impact on language and life today. A small amount of homework is set each week.
