This course is an introduction to the Latin language and its speakers, the ancient Romans. In this course, you will develop proficiency in listening, speaking, writing, and especially reading Latin. This means that you will: 1) acquire certain linguistic knowledge and skills (e.g. pronunciation, vocabulary, morphology and syntax), and 2) understand the culture that produced texts in Latin and used it on a daily basis. The Latin language is the basis of all the Romance languages and has also influenced many other European and non-European languages. The civilization of ancient Rome, along with ancient Greece, is the foundation of western civilization, and is thus an important part of world heritage.
