Course Credits: 0.5

Course Price: $250.00


Course Details:

History-changing battles, great poets and statesmen, classic art and architecture, and a language that was heard throughout most of the known world. In Latin I, students read the opening credits of this epic movie. In Latin II, the plots and the characters that populated ancient Rome come alive. In this course, students build on their knowledge of Latin grammar and vocabulary. In the process, they sense the beauty of the language and the passion of those who spoke it. A clear, expressive, and flexible language-a language in which students can communicate-supports Roman engineering, art, commerce, and system of laws.

This course gives students a solid grounding in the structure of the language. It also gives them a clear lens for looking into the heart and majesty of the Roman spirit.
