Introduction to Latin, OLLI Fall 2021


Tom Hayes, rudedonatus@gmail.com, 631-246-5364


    Welcome to Introductory Latin. Whether your first experience or you are returning to an old friend, I hope Latin can be as helpful and sustaining for you as it has been for me. 

     I will explain how to use the website at our first session.

     You do not need to buy anything, all materials will be available on this webpage, and should be posted the Thursday before class. Ancillary on-line vocabulary exercises will also be recommended. A brief precis of what happened in the previous session will also be posted on Thursday.

     It would be good to download and print each chapter as I post it, since the chapters also comprise a workbook in which to write. There will also be supplementary pages that it will be helpful to have (since we have no way to pass out handouts). 

     E-mail or call me anytime. If I don't pick up, leave a message. I am probably just screening to make sure you are not selling timeshares on a barrier reef.


     If you can print out #1 below under primā sessiōne, you can use it when we meet.  But if you can't figure it out yet, no problem.  We will walk through the process together. N.B., it is not necessary to ask for access or sign-in in order to see or use this material.

April 4  We finished the readings in Ch 12, and reviewed the formation and use of the passive. We began Caput 13, which presents the present tense. You could try the first exercises.

The translations of the 1st 3 paragraphs are found here:O.N. 12 readings r,s,t in English.doc


March 22 We looked again at the earlier exercises (G,I) which can be foundbelow with  translations and then started exercise L-whose translation is following  O.N. 12 exercise L.doc

. We also read the first few sentences of  the  next reading. We will redo that next time. I also  did a little matching exercise for  practice for passive verbs O.N. 12 extra exercise 1.doc 

There is also a quizlet that may be  helpful.
