In this course we shall read through  Lingua Latina per se Illustrata, by Hans Ørberg, and complete the accompanying exercises and use some of the auxiliary materials. Students will hear and use Latin in the middle 50 minutes of each class, but may ask questions in English in the first five and final five minutes. There will be a brief weekly memorization assignment (to be rendered orally or in writing, at the student’s choice), comparable in difficulty to the texts which we shall read.
