At the completion of this unit students will be able to:

  1. work in a fully online enhanced learning environment to demonstrate a knowledge of advanced Ecclesiastical Latin grammar
  2. read and translate complex Latin texts into English
  3. translate complex English constructions into Latin
  4. demonstrate comprehension of simple spoken Latin texts
