First Form Latin

Description: An introduction to Latin for students that takes a logical, systematic approach to grammar and syntax. Grammar and syntax are taught systematically in order to facilitate retention and understanding, and the extensive workbook exercises ensure skills mastery and rapid recognition. Students will need to devote 30-45 minutes per day for this class. The class grade is based upon participation, weekly quizzes, a mid-term and final exam. The class is interactive and students will be called upon to recite in class. For information on the content covered see the First Form Latin table of contents here. This class is worth 1 high school credit.

Prerequisites: None. We recommend that younger students use this free typing tool and work through a few of the levels over the summer. Heavy-duty typing is not required but this will orient students to the basics of a computer keyboard and very basic typing skills.

Required Materials: First Form Latin Student Text, Pronunciation CD,Student Workbook (2nd ed) and Workbook Key (2nd ed). Students will also need a USB headset microphone (built-in microphones also work).
