Latin I

SALVETE!
You have enrolled in a course which is interesting, challenging, fun, and practical. You will learn much this year about the language, culture, and history of the ancient Romans. You will also learn much about your own language and the great debt which we in the United States owe to their civilization which ruled the world from Britain to the Middle East for well over 500 years. I am excited you are here and hope that you will find the class exciting and meaningful!

The Course

Latin I introduces the student to the grammar, syntax, and vocabulary of the Latin language. The purpose of learning Latin is to gain the ability to read and understand the language and literature left to us in the modern world by the ancient Romans. Attention will also be given to the use of Latin vocabulary, phrases, and mottoes commonly used in English today as well as to English words derived from Latin, thus greatly increasing the understanding and use of English vocabulary. Since it is always important to learn a language in the context of the civilization it is used, study will also be made of Roman culture, ancient history and geography, and Greek and Roman mythology and their contribution to our own culture.
