Latin- Introductory- (Homeschool)

Introductory Classical Latin – Fall 2019

Thursdays: September 5th - Dec 12th, 1:30 - 2:30 PM
South San Jose
This class is open to students aged 10+.

Please note there will be no class Nov 28 in observance of Thanksgiving.
Classes will take place in my home in South San Jose (near Martial Cottle Park).
Parents are welcome to drop off students or remain and observe.


Course Content

Students will learn to read, write, and pronounce Classical Latin. They will obtain understanding of inflection and basic verb tenses along with other foundational grammatical knowledge. By studying vocabulary, grammar, and syntax, students will not only gain an appreciation for Latin, but will also learn more about English, other Romance languages, and language in general. Students will also begin to read sentences in original Latin.

Students should expect to spend approximately 30 minutes/day outside of class reviewing material and practicing their vocabulary, grammar, and reading skills.


Materials

Online Classroom
Students will have access to an online classroom, which will contain not only the work for the week, but also additional resources and content for them to engage with, both alone and with their classmates online. Students will receive access to the online classroom about a week prior to the start of class.

Office Hours
I will hold “office hours” weekly online over Zoom on Monday evenings from 5-5:30 PM. Students will receive information for my meeting room the first day of class.

We will be using the text Learn to Read Latin (LTRL) along with its workbook as our primary resources. Students should purchase both the text and workbook.* While LTRL is more expensive than some texts, it is one of the best Latin resources on the market for helping students obtain thorough grammatical knowledge and for offering rapid introduction to and competence with original texts. This text will be used for multiple semesters.

Note* I have one used copy of the LTRL text for sale for $40. Please contact me at lauren@linguasantiquas.com if you are interested in purchasing it.

Supplemental learning resources will be provided.
