Pre-Latin: The One Course to Take Before You Begin Learning Latin
Angela Kennedy, B.A., M.A.

Assessments OfferedI will assess each learner with an in-class assignment and send the information in a written report after class.
A worksheet and handout will be provided for each learner. Learners may want to bring paper and something to write with to take notes during the class.
I will refer to a Latin dictionary once during the class. I will draw from, but not show, Wheelock's Latin (7th ed.) for the purpose of introducing the Latin equivalent to our English parts of speech.
