Cambridge Latin Course Unit 4.  Latin 3H is an advanced language course designed for the superior Latin students who wish to continue to refine their Latin skills and reading ability.  New grammar includes all uses of the subjunctive mood, gerund and gerundive; the student’s overriding task is to read and comprehend the variety of clauses and constructions which typically form the Latin periodic sentence. A study of rhetoric accompanies readings from speeches of Cicero.  In addition to the prose readings mentioned in the description of Latin 3, the 3H student will study a selected Latin author, reading excerpts from  his   original  works.  Latin 3H is strongly recommended for students intending to enroll in Latin 4AP in the following year.
