Great introductory course. Interesting and a little bit of a challenge, but the gradual addition of new concepts/words means that it isn't overwhelming. Does require a lot of time investment though. UQLatin is absolutely amazing, and Chris Malone was honest about what the course would be like from the start. He was a great lecturer, and he works hard to keep things interesting even through the dull parts. Regular assessments help you keep on top of the material and give you an idea of where you sit with your learning.
I really enjoyed this course; it challenged me and made me work hard for my grades, but it wasn't particularly challenging academically. Chris was a great instructor and was approachable and able to answer any questions we had. The exams were well spaced so that you never felt overwhelmed by the amount of material you had to learn. The UQLatin website was also an absolute lifesaver.
This subject was interesting. The way the classes are taught means you basically don't have to attend, which can be good or bad depending on your preference. Meaning, the classes consisted of just sitting down with the lecturer going around the classroom getting each student to read a translated line from the course material, which was supposed to be done for homework. By checking your answers in the book you don't really need to go as that is essentially all the classes consist of, outside of in-class tests.
