Course Details:

There is a reason "all roads lead to Rome". Maybe it is because Romans built much of the ancient world's highway system. Maybe it is also because the Roman culture and Latin language laid the foundation for much of Western culture. In this course, students find out for themselves as they take their first steps on a lifelong journey of discovery.

Students improve their command of the English language by studying Latin. Students also gain a better understanding of today's laws and culture by getting into the Roman mind. Latin I is the most comprehensive way to begin.

The purpose of this course is to give students a foundation in Latin grammar and vocabulary. This course also acquaints students with Olympic gods and with the everyday life of the typical Roman. The course sets the students' feet on a journey as big as their imagination, with a passport to some of the world’s most exciting places.
