Getting started on Classical Latin

Introduction

Unit image

The aim of this unit is to enable you to get started in Latin. It has been developed in response to requests from students who had had no contact with Latin before and who felt they would like to spend a little time preparing for the kind of learning that takes place on a classical language course. The unit will give you a taster of what is involved in the very early stages of learning Latin and will offer you the opportunity to put in some early practice.

This material is from our archive and is an adapted extract from A297 Reading Classical Latin, which is no longer taught by The Open University. If you want to study formally with us, you may wish to explore other courses we offer in this subject area. [Tip: hold Ctrl and click a link to open it in a new tab. (Hide tip)]
