What if you went back in time 1,000 or 2,000 years? Would you be able to speak to kids in the Roman empire, or to medieval European students? Do you want to be able to read Latin as easily as you read English? This class uses a text book from the 1930s to help students gain fluency in Latin reading, writing, speaking and listening. The authors designed this book to work with the “natural approach” method of language acquisition, where students are given a lot of comprehensible input and...
By the end of the class, if you've been participating, you should be able to speak in more-or-less grammatically correct Latin to greet people, talk about yourself and other people (including your immediate family), ask and answer questions about people and things (including 'What is she doing?' and 'Why...?'), talk a little about what you like, what country you're from, and a little bit about your house. You'll be able to use the verbs to like, to prepare, to want, to work, to understand, to carry. Vocabulary Covered: He/she/it/this is… ; they/these are …; here is/are; am, is, are; boy, girl, student, teacher, woman, big, tall, small, good, not, and, also; of what kind?; greetings; statements, questions, here is, here are, my, your, son, daughter, mother, sister, brother, to love/like, questions (Do you like…? Does she like…? Who is…?), answers in the affirmative, now, but, homelands/nations (America, Australia, Britain, Cuba, Ireland, Spain, Italy, Sicily), land, island, old, new, road, long, fortune/luck, fame, questions about people’s homelands, qualities of people and places, on, in, reason, to have, who, why, because, where, field, to understand, happy, to prepare, to want, to work, to carry, farmer, house, supper, letter, school, questions like “What are you/is he doing?”
There will be a final project where students will give a five-minute presentation to the class in Latin, using a drawing, google slides, or a story — anything that incorporates the material we’ve learned during the class to talk about people and places and describe them. There will be time after each presentation for questions and discussion.
1 file available upon enrollmentWe'll be talking about: People (man, woman, boy, girl) Family members (father, mother, brother, sister, son, daughter) Teachers and students Farmers, sailors, and poets Islands and continents Roads Italy, Spain, America, Britain, Cuba, Ireland, Sicily, Australia Fields, houses, school, supper, letters (like "I wrote a letter to my cousin," not alphabet), money, gifts, pictures, stories, doors, windows, woods, roses. Please bring anything you could use to talk about any or all of the above -- Lego, Playmobil, action figures, photos from magazines, whatever. Also please make sure you have some paper and markers, crayons, whatever -- and be prepared to draw or write! If you could prepare a family tree (not necessarily your own, you can use Star Wars or Harry Potter or the Greek or Roman gods, whatever) so you have something to look at and show others when we're talking about relationships between people. The PDF of the text book will be attached to the "welcome" message when you register for the class. Please print at least Lessons 1-4 before the first class, and have them with you during class.
7 hours 20 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
