Course Description:

Process

Latin 1 is the equivalent of one year of High School Foreign Language credit. It is designed for the high school student with little or no background in the language. It includes a weekly study of Latin vocabulary and English derivatives. During the year, students will learn all 5 noun declensions and cases, all verb conjugations, irregular verbs, and various pronouns, adjectives and adverbs. Learning is reinforced through weekly readings and translations. The students also take a fascinating journey through Roman culture, myths, and history, all through a Christian perspective. Students will be reading weekly Latin texts about such historical figures as Aeneas, Cincinnatus, Hannibal, Cato, Cicero, Spartacus, Julius Caesar and Brutus.
