This module aims to build on the skills and knowledge acquired in CLAH401 and CLAH402 to cover further elements of Latin Grammar, phonology and morphology and their terminologies, the analysis of further compound sentence structure, translation of sentences from and into Latin, short passages from Latin, and preparation of sections of continuous reading material.


Learning Outcomes

To be aware of un-English word order principles. To be aware of un-English pronoun usage. To be aware of un-English sound. To be aware of different sociological frames for some lexical items. To be able to use principle translation strategies (top down-bottom up; information sequencing; need-to-know; phrase building; prediction; chunking). To be aware of different learning methods.

(LO3) Students who take this module will revise basic forms and constructions and further be trained in the use of:Subjunctive in indirect speech, gerunds, gerundives, impersonal verbs, scansion of hexameters, word accentuation.

Teaching and Learning Strategies

Teaching Method 1 - Seminar
Description: Language classes; combination of discursive explanation, demonstration, practical language-work, translation of continuous text (seen and unseen)

revision of paradigms; translation work; revision and private practice

The knowledge and skills built up in CLAH401 and CLAH402 are developed via further language classes (reinforcing constructions already learned, adding nuances, and adding new constructions). In addition, regular unseen translation classes provide the opportunity to develop techniques for coping with continuous Latin. Regular preparation and reading of set text material allows these skills to be refined and reinforced

Attendance Recorded: Yes
