The study of classical Latin exercises memory, increases English vocabulary, and broadens general knowledge. Using the textbook Ecce Romani I, participants will learn Latin vocabulary, English vocabulary derived from Latin, Latin and English grammar, translation skills, and ancient Roman geography, history, daily life, and mythology. Latin abbreviations and phrases used in English, such as e.g., A.D., et al., ad hoc, status quo, and tempus fugit, will be featured on a regular basis. Participants will need to obtain a copy of the 2nd, 3rd, or 4th edition of Ecce Romani I. A complimentary copy of the text will be provided as long as the supply lasts. Ecce Romani is a reading-based program and this high school-based curriculum is presented in English with some conversational phrases in Latin.
Taught by Susan Craig.
Class is full and is not accepting new students at this time. We hope to offer a new round of Introduction to Classical Latin soon!
