Latin 1

Prerequisites: No experience necessary

Course Length: Each semester course is 90 lessons. Each lesson is about 30 minutes.

Course Description: Latin remains a vital tool in improving children's fundamental understanding of English and other languages. While being, in the strictest sense, a "dead" language, Latin comes alive in this course through the use of gaming and multimedia techniques, creating the foundation for a deep understanding of cultural, political, and literary history. An integrated, game-based reward system keeps learners motivated and eager to progress.

Communication expressions include greetings, introductions, familiar phrases, relationships, cause and effect, likes and dislikes, and questions. Vocabulary progresses from animals, body parts, family relationships, colors, food, plants, and numbers to small objects, shapes, and household words. Grammar begins with simple sentence construction, first-and third-person verbs, demonstrative pronouns, conjunctions, and simple possession before moving on to basic third-person past-tense and imperative forms, as well as certain second-person present-tense forms.

Cultural topics introduce the history of the Latin language, and daily practices as well as military, political, and artistic aspects of the Roman Empire.

Latin I

Prerequisites: No experience necessary

Course Length: Each semester course is 90 lessons. Each lesson is about 45-60 minutes.

Notes: Students who have already completed Middle School Latin 2 should enroll in Latin II rather than in Latin I.

Course Description: The Latin I course allows the students to learn an ancient, "dead" language in a modern, lively manner. The course includes the fundamental building blocks of world-language study: reading, writing, listening comprehension, and speaking. Students learn Latin vocabulary while enhancing their own vocabulary through derivatives with common Latin roots and are exposed to a wide range of grammar patterns that bolster their understanding of how languages work. They learn to compose Latin sentences from simple to complex ones. Students compare and contrast Roman cultural practices, products, and perspectives with other cultures. Student progress is assessed in proficiency through quizzes, tests, and speaking/writing submissions. Each week the students learn new vocabulary and a grammar concept, followed by numerous interactive games, reinforcing vocabulary and grammar. The students complete reading and listening comprehension activities, speaking, and writing activities based on the weekly theme. Cultural presentations covering significant aspects of Roman culture provide the student with an opportunity to get to know the ancient Romans and understand the impact that this "dead" language and culture has on them to this day! The course has been carefully aligned to national standards as set forth by ACTFL (the American Council on the Teaching of Foreign Languages).

Latin II

Prerequisites: Latin I, or equivalent

Course Length: Each semester course is 90 lessons. Each lesson is about 45-60 minutes.

Course Description: The Latin II course continues the study of the ancient language in a modern manner. The course is centered around mythology. Every two weeks a new myth, written in Latin, is introduced, which drives the weekly vocabulary, grammar lessons, and culture lessons. The weekly lessons stress the fundamental building blocks of world-language study: reading, writing, listening comprehension, and speaking. The students read and translate the myths each week. The students write, both in Latin and in English, given prompts based on the myths they are studying. The students listen to the myths read aloud to them and are asked comprehension questions based on these lessons. The students are asked to do Latin tongue twisters and recite nursery rhymes in Latin in order to practice speaking in Latin. The students continue to improve their English vocabulary through the study of derivatives. The students continue to learn more complex Latin grammar and are introduced to more aspects of Roman culture. The students' progress is assessed weekly through quizzes and speaking/writing submissions. The students are given opportunities to compare and contrast the stories they are translating and learning in Latin with more modern stories from different cultures as this "dead" language comes alive in a virtual setting! The course has been carefully aligned to national standards as set forth by ACTFL (the American Council on the Teaching of Foreign Languages).
