“[Latin] allows you to adore words, take them apart and find out where they came from.”— Theodore Geisel (Dr. Seuss)
First Form Latin curriculum focuses on grammar forms and vocabulary. Students will learn the first two verb conjugations (six indicative active tenses), five noun declensions and first and second declension adjectives, as well as 185 vocabulary words. Students will recognize and use elements of the Latin language to increase knowledge of their own language. Incorporated into the course are some tidbits from Latin history and culture so that students can learn how Roman culture and mythology have influenced contemporary society. Completion of homework is essential to ensure skills, proficiency and memorization.
