Students will develop basic reading and conversational skills in the Latin language. Through this practice, we will learn vocabulary and grammar. The specific grammar covered in this course will include 1st and 2nd Declension nouns and adjectives, imperative verbs (singular), and indicative, present tense verbs in the third person. The specific elements of Roman life will include geography of the Roman Empire and the Roman family.
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 OfferedBuilding on the previous lesson, students should spend about an hour preparing for the next one. When the next lesson will be reading, students should try the reading for themselves beforehand, and then we will go over it in class. If the next lesson will be workbook exercises, students should go over those exercises beforehand. Be prepared to share your answers in class!
1 - 2 hours per week outside of class
Assessments OfferedAt the end of the course, the students will be tested on the "Pensa" (Exercises) that appear at the end of each chapter. Students scoring a 70% accuracy or better will be ready to move onto Latin Fluency 2. Students with lower scores should meet with the teacher for 1-on-1 tutoring before moving onto the next level.
Textbook "Lingua Latina per se Illustrata: Familia Romana" by Hans Ørberg Workbook "Exercitia Romana"
Not everything about the Roman world was good, so we will learn to be honest about and critical of the good, the bad, and the ugly about history. Specifically in this course, we will be exposed to parents beating their children and slavery.
Our main resources will be the textbook "Lingua Latina per se Illustrata" (Hans Ørberg) and the accompanying workbook "Exercitia Romana. Make sure you purchase these materials before the class starts (available on Amazon).
