Near-Beginners

These courses are intended primarily to increase fluency, for students who have had some but not much exposure to Latin, by reading more literature in the original.

Tutors choose texts intended to best suit the students based on the information they and their referees provide. A lot of groups will use readers (which supply additional help alongside the text with vocabulary and grammar) – such as:

  • Wheelock – Selections from Latin Literature
  • Murgatroyd – Apuleius, Metamorphoses and From Augustus to Nero
  • Balme and Morwood – Cupid and Psyche and The Millionaire’s Dinner Party
  • The Oxford and Cambridge Latin Anthologies
