This intermediate course will be a continuation of the Latin course offered last term. Having taken high school or college Latin would also be an acceptable prerequisite to this class. Basic grammar, vocabulary, and pronunciation will be covered. The text will present simplified versions of stories from Ovid’s “Metamorphoses.”
