Course objectives
The course aims at providing students with the basics of Latin grammar system. The emphasis is placed on gaining the gist of the system and of the functions of individual grammatical categories and their appropriate terming. Students master common forms of nouns and verbs and the principles of their formation. Attention is also paid to the most frequent syntactic features. Concerning the vocabulary, students are taught the frequent word roots many of which appear in the modern languages. At the end of this course, students are able to read elementary Latin texts. The knowledge of the principles of Latin grammatical system and the basic vocabulary gives students a good basis for the study of other languages.

Assessment methods
Active participation in the seminars (min. 75% attendance) and regular preparation of grammar and translation assignments are the essential requirements for obtaining the credit. The grade is determined based on the performance in a final written test where students’ mastery of basic grammar is tested through a translation of a short self-contained Latin passage (dictionaries allowed).
