Course Description: Latin I is an introduction to the language, history, and culture of ancient Rome. This course provides students with a foundation of essential Latin vocabulary and major grammatical elements, including noun declensions and cases, pronouns, adjectives, adverbs, and active indicative verb conjugations. Through a combination of grammar and inductive approaches to language learning, students will develop fluency reading Latin narratives, translating sentences, and analyzing syntax. Students will also expand their English vocabulary and understanding of grammar through the study of Latin derivatives and inflected forms. By reading and reflecting on Latin stories set in the Roman Empire, students will learn about significant historical events, the geography of the ancient Mediterranean, religious beliefs and practices, and other major customs of the Roman people.
