Student reviews

This was an enjoyable course and the teaching methods for the language, brilliant - especially for someone who may not have had great success with a foreign language. The history and the literature were thoroughly enjoyable, but wish there had been more time for reading the literature, and with far less emphasis on just one writer - Ovid. I didn't dislike him, but would have liked to study more, and be examined on more of the other poets - Horace, for example.
