LAT 111 - PLO Elementary Latin 1

4.00 credits.
(Power of Language Core Course)
This class is designed to introduce students to the Latin language and the cultural/ historical contexts in which the language was used. Through a study of the history, philosophy, religion, literature of ancient Rome and Greece, students will learn to make culturally informed translations of Latin into English. Acquisition of Latin vocabulary and grammatical concepts will enhance English vocabulary and grammar. Class sessions will include introductions to and discussions of grammatical concepts, reading practice, review of homework assignments, and discussion of cultural nuances. Because the course is designed to develop an ability to read Latin, quizzes and exams will emphasize translation from Latin into English. Some homework exercises will also ask students to translate English into Latin. Fall semester.
