Non scholae, sed vitae discimus -- Seneca (We learn not for school, but for life)

This Latin course will pick up where the class left off in Latin I and II. We will continue our learning of the Latin language through vocabulary, grammar, Roman myths/legends/history, and the influence of Rome (beyond language) on our modern culture. Latin is a very practical language to study, as it will help to build English vocabulary (with the focus on derivatives) and extend the students knowledge of English grammar. The study of Latin is also ideal preparation for the study of all Romance languages.

For the class, we will use the textbook: Second Form Latin or Third Form Latin by Cheryl Lowe (published by Memoria Press), and its workbook companion. Both the textbook and workbook will be required for the class and can be purchased through memoriapress.com or Amazon for about $30.

This will be a traditional classroom setting with some lecture, oral and written exercises, homework, and weekly quizzes. Students should come prepared for class each week with pencil, paper, 3 ring binder, and all homework completed. 

Cost: $60/month (Sept - May)
