AbstractThe general topic of the course is Augustus. On the basis of didactically prepared texts written by various Latin authors (including Sueton, Augustus) this enigmatic figure who became the first emperor of the Roman Empire is examined.
Students mostly prepare the texts at home for class discussion. Furthermore, important topics of basic grammar are reviewed (exercises).
ObjectiveStudents gain an understanding of various aspects of a new topic and are able to analyse and contrast these aspects within a wider context.
Participants reactivate, review, and improve their language skills (vocabulary, morphology, morphosyntax) by applying these skills to texts and in exercises (translation competence, text analysis).
