Course Description: Have you completed Familia Romana and are you ready to move on to the second volume of Ørberg’s textbook? Or are you interested in discussing the writings of Sallust, Ovid, Livy, or Aulus Gellius in order to improve your competence in reading and speaking Latin? Ørberg's Rōma Aeterna offers a great selection of readings organized by degrees of difficulty that can help us achieve these goals. We will start with the second chapter in the book (Virgil's Aeneid) and proceed gradually from there. The instructor will suggest (but not require) some written exercises from the 'Exercitia' workbook, or other sources, that will help develop both skills. The instructor will give feedback and open discussion on these or any other topics related to teaching Latin with Ørberg’s methodology or through the ‘natural’ method.
Level: Intermediate Latin Conversation: This course is intended for both teachers who want to apply listening and speaking skills in their classroom as well as for students who have a good foundation of grammar but want to improve their listening and speaking skills.
Textbook: Ørberg's 'Rōma Aeterna' and the 'Exercitia' workbook
