    Overview

    Aims and Scope

    The Latinum Electronicum is an interactive Latin course which teaches the basic knowledge of Latin. The course was developed within the framework of the Virtual Campus Switzerland in three languages German, French, and Italian. In 23 lessons, students can learn Latin and also prepare for the qualification in Latin exam. Animated graphics facilitate the comprehension of those grammatical topics that are especially challenging: for example, the ablativus absolutus and six other syntactic phenomena are described through the use of example sentences which are analyzed and translated before the eyes of the learner.
