PRELIMINARY ASSESSMENT OF KNOWLEDGE OF LATIN LANGUAGE.

Based on the topics covered in the basic Latin extracurricular training course, on which detailed information will be available both on the site of the School of Letters Arts Philosophy and on the Blended Learning platform (Moodle), this test will consist of questions on morphology and syntax of the Latin language and in the translation of a passage taken from the work of an author of Latin literature. In order to take the test, the student will have two dates available during the academic year, which will be set in a period immediately preceding the scheduled exams at the end of the first and second semesters and communicated both on the site of the School of Lettere Arti Filosofia both on the Blended Learning platform (Moodle).
