In this class, follow the Cornelian family in the book "Ecce Romani I" as we begin our journey of learning the Latin language, as well as Roman society and culture.

US Grade 6 - 8
Beginner Level
Students will learn how to translate a Latin passage through a rigorous study of vocabulary and grammar. Beyond that, we will learn basic conversation in Latin. Here we will begin our journey towards reading the Latin writings of the Romans.
We will become exposed to Roman culture.
After taking Latin in both high school and college, I have been tutoring Latin for the last five years and taught in school for the last two. My experience covers a broad age range from fifth graders to adults. I have also used several different learning methods between deductive grammar, the reading method, and the living language approach. I am personally more drawn to the living language approach, but incorporating the other two under that umbrella have been equally important. One high school client I tutored from the ground up has since gone on to pass the AP Latin exam, and I aim to do the same with your children.
Homework Offered
Before each lesson, try the material for yourself. Before a translation class, try the translation on your own first. Before a grammar class, try the exercises first. We will go over it in class, so please be prepared to share your work. Do not worry about getting it right! We are here to learn, and one of the best ways to learn is through correcting mistakes.
1 - 2 hours per week outside of class
Assessments Offered
At the end of the course, you will receive a test for homework. This will let you know if you are ready to move onto the next class or not. If you have scored less than a 70%, private tutoring will be available to help you move on.
Grades Offered
Not everything about Roman life was good, especially the practice of slavery. The best approach when dealing with these issues is to be honest about the good, the bad, and the ugly. That way, we can learn to emulate the good and criticize the bad.
