Live GS
Foreign Language | Latin
Grade School Beginning Latin, Part Two

Join us for Part Two to prepare for future academic studies in a fun way and find the joy in learning something new!

Total classes: 12

Prerequisite: None

Suggested grade level: 3rd to 5th grade

Suggested credit: One full semester Latin

Special Notes: All course materials are provided FREE by the instructor. 

It is recommended that the parent sits in on the weekly live class, so they can best assist students in making materials and doing memory work. If a parent is not available during the live class, they can watch the recording the next day.

This is Part Two of a two-part course. Students may be accepted midyear if the instructor grants permission. Contact the instructor by email if you would like to join midyear.


Students will continue their introduction to basic Latin speaking and reading skills through fun activities and homework assignments. By the end of the semester, students will have cemented and expanded their previous abilities to read a short Latin passage, answer comprehension questions in Latin, and sustain a 5-minute Latin conversation. In addition to the map of the Roman Empire, students will learn about the Roman household in order to write a cartoon dialogue entirely in Latin by the end of the semester. This course will prepare students for beginning middle school Latin with any Latin curriculum. We will explore mainly Ecclesiastical pronunciations.
