Latin I B
Students will be introduced to the history of ancient Rome and some of the people who made that history.
This first year Latin course is designed for high school students who are new to the Latin language. Students will learn the basics of Latin grammar beginning with nouns of the first three declensions and verbs in the present active system, including imperfect and future tenses. Students will also be introduced to the history of ancient Rome and some of the people who made that history. A strong knowledge of Latin will also help students to understand the roots of many English words, and especially the more difficult words where students can often discover Latin roots that hold clues to their meaning. The knowledge of Latin Grammar will assist students with their writing and comprehension of language in general.
