This class is taught in English.
Students will improve their knowledge and understanding of Latin grammar and language, increasing their ability to read increasingly complex Latin with fluency. They will also learn English derivative words based on Latin roots, in context, while gaining a better understanding of English grammar as they learn Latin grammar.
I am a certified 6-12 educator with 22 years of experience in teaching secondary Latin and a Master's degree in Latin.
Homework Offered
Homework consists often of translating Latin to English to practice with and increase mastery over concepts covered in class. There are occasional shorter targeted exercises involving the concepts as well.
