About the Course
First Form Latin

This class is recommended as a beginner Latin program for students in 5th grade and up, or for Latin students who have completed Latina Christiana. If your student has completed Latina Christiana and is younger than fifth grade, please contact me to discuss including your student in this class. 

The class will emphasize Latin grammar, focusing on the verbal system as well as Latin adjectives. The student will also increase substantially his/her vocabulary (185 words). The course will include a weekly review for assistance in memorization. We will also achieve memorization of vocabulary and grammatical forms through the different senses (e.g., singing/speaking, listening, writing, seeing, etc.). The speed by which we work through the lessons will be determined by the ability of the students.

Textbooks required: First Form Student Text,  First Form Student Workbook,  First Form Quizzes and Tests - all 3 should be Second Edition

Optional, but highly recommended: Pronunciation CD, Flashcards

Learning Latin helps students learn to think critically and to express their thoughts well. Latin helps students grow in their understanding of the way language works (including English vocabulary and grammar). I will lead the class and encourage student participation (both comments and questions). I will give weekly assignments and will expect the assignments to be handed in on time. Further, over the year, the student's knowledge of the material will be tested through regularly written quizzes and a few written tests. We will have "fun" in the classroom, playing games throughout the year to help review.  The objective is to have fun while learning. Feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns you might have. I look forward to meeting your students this year! 

Registration Numbers: Minimum 6; Maximum 12
