Following the successful completion of First-Year Latin I (LAT 506 or equivalent), this online course will continue to build the foundations of Latin vocabulary, grammar and syntax, bringing the student to an intermediate proficiency in the language. We will work our way through Wheelock’s Latin, chapters 26-40. We will accompany this work with regular readings of texts relating to Roman history and historical myths, leading up to a reading of authentic Latin (Eutropius' commentary on the war against Hannibal).
