Intro to Latin

Description

This is a full-year course.

This course will expose students to the basic language, culture, and history of the ancient Romans. It will introduce students to basic Latin grammar, vocabulary, and syntax. The result of the students' study of Latin is improved knowledge of both English vocabulary and grammar, an expanded understanding of the relationship of the ancient world to their own, and appreciation of other foreign languages and cultures.

We will focus on developing a strong grammatical understanding of the language, which will aid students later as they delve into authentic texts. Students will be prepared to take the Introduction to Latin National Latin Examination later in the year.

The course will have videos for each grammatical lesson and will be supplemented with office hours if students need deeper assistance.
