IGCSE Latin Online Course
This Latin syllabus aims to develop learners’ ability to understand Latin vocabulary, morphology and syntax, and to read, understand and appreciate some of the best of Latin literature.
Learners will develop an analytical approach to language and be better equipped to compare the structures of Latin with those of other languages, as well as be able to recognise the impact of Latin on modern English. The course also encourages learners to develop an appreciation of literature, in terms of both its content and style, and of its social and historical context.
The aims and objectives of this qualification are to enable pupils to develop:
- The ability to translate and understand Latin, and to relate the linguistic structures and vocabulary of Latin to other languages, including English
- An appreciation of some of the literature which forms much of the foundation of the Western tradition
- An interest in, and enthusiasm for, learning about the past
- The ability to present clear, logical arguments which are well supported by evidence.
