Intermediate Latin Reading: Wheelock’s Loci Antiqui & Immutati
Tues. 8pm Eastern
Course Description: In this course, we will read, translate, and discuss the reading selections that come after chapter 40 in Wheelock’s textbook, starting with the lightly-adapted Loci Antiqui before moving on to the unadapted Loci Immutati.
Level: This course is designed for students with intermediate reading knowledge of Latin. It would be ideal for students who have recently completed the grammar component of Wheelock’s textbook, or who are looking for more practice reading lightly-adapted Latin.
