$450 Tuition for 28 weeks of 75-minute classes with Dr. Barbara Gauthier

Sep 7-Nov 30, Jan 11-May 17

Latin 1 (formerly Latin 3) is an entry-level course.

Latin 1 makes use of the Oxford Latin series. In addition to Latin grammar and vocabulary, this course places an emphasis on reading longer passages in classical Latin and translating English sentences into Latin. Students will study the comparative grammars of Latin and English and the development of English vocabulary from Latin root words. The book follows the life of the poet Horace (65-8 B.C.) as he grows up on a farm outside of Rome. Students will also learn about Roman life, culture and history during the Republic and the early days of the Empire.  Later readings cover Horace's career as a poet and the rise of Augustus Caesar and will include selections from Roman history and poetry.

Note: More advanced Latin classes will be held on a tutorial basis.
