The intensive course for beginners does not require any previous knowledge of Latin. The topics to be studied include Latin orthography and pronunciation, basic morphology, frequent syntactic constructions and basic vocabulary.Students' knowledge and understanding is substantiated by reading, analysis and translation of short sentences and passages taken from original Latin texts (adjusted and supplied with commentaries) covering the period from the beginnings to Humanistic period.
In the 2nd semester, the course imparts a synoptic knowledge of essential features of the classical Latin morphology and syntax, and focuses on the fundamental differences between Slovene and Latin language system, as well as on the impact of these differences on the translations of Latin texts in Slovene.
