Latin II


SALVETE! Our goal this year is to complete the study of elementary Latin in order to prepare ourselves for the reading and studying of authentic Latin literature in Latin III, Advanced Latin Prose, and Advanced Latin Poetry. We will seek to communicate with the ancient Romans in the only avenue left to us and that is through their language and literature which they have left behind. Sic itur ad astra!

The Course

Latin II picks up from where your Latin I class left off. We will review and build upon the grammar, syntax, and vocabulary covered last year as more complex aspects of the Latin language are introduced and applied. 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.


CLASS ANNOUNCEMENTS
  • Remember that you may write out the Latin vocabulary five times for extra credit. Be sure to include nominative, genitive, gender, and meaning for nouns; masculine, feminine, and neuter nominative singulars and meaning for adjectives; all principal parts and meaning for verbs; and adverbs, prepositions (with case), and conjunctions with meanings. This extra credit is due at the time you take the quiz.
