Programme Outline:

Based on the teaching method of Reginald Foster, this course covers the Latin Third Experience. This intermediate course is perfect for adults wanting to continue from the Beginners’ course or for re-establishing a past knowledge.

There are no vocabulary cards! No paradigms to memorise! Just the living language to understand, write and speak. Working slowly, using simple texts for a clear understanding of the author’s work.

Encounter the living Latin language. Learn to pronounce, read and understand Latin from original texts, both ancient and modern. Learn to compose your own sentences. Instructions given in English.

Previous Knowledge: The intermediate course presumes an understanding and use of the material presented in the First Experience of Ossa Latinitatis Sola, in particular:

  • the verb in all times of the indicative, both active and passive and deponent;
  • nouns and adjectives of all groups in five of their functions (subject; object; of possession; by-with-from-in; to-for-from)
  • commands, active, passive, deponent;
  • personal and reflexive pronouns, conjunctions, relatives, prepositions.
