This course introduces the foundations of Latin vocabulary, grammar, and syntax to the beginning student of the Latin language. We will work our way through Wheelock’s Latin, covering around two-thirds of the textbook and bringing the student around halfway to intermediate competency (when the student becomes able to read unabridged Latin texts with assistance).
