Latin - Intro – 4-5:30
Have you ever wondered how so many scientific words come from Latin? Did the Romans know science and engineering? Yes, the word “science” comes from “SCIENTIA,” the Latin word for “knowledge.” Students of Latin score higher on verbal exams because they know more vocabulary and better understand the structure of language.
Come learn some history and culture of ancient Rome along with the root forms of many English vocabulary words. Increase your understanding of grammar and syntax as you have fun with basic Latin. Your instructor has taught Latin for 43 years.
This class is appropriate for anyone in grades 4 through 8 who have not yet studied Latin or are beginners.
You will also increase your vocabulary and learn some witty classic Latin phrases to try out on your friends. Carpe diem!
The course will help prepare you to score high on the National Latin Exam in given in March. Last year three of our students got gold or silver medals on the exam, two of them got perfect scores!
The class will meet mostly in-person on Tuesdays from 4:00-5:30 pm, from September through March, for a total of 30 classes or 45 hours. On days when weather and driving is a challenge, we will meet over Zoom. Once a month the class will not meet at the regular time, but you will have an educational video to watch at home during class time. There will be some assignments to review concepts and vocabulary, but this is not a graded course.
The fee is $800.
