Latin 1

FOR6010

Latin is a problem-solving language that primes the brain to look at subject matter from every angle. It is the mother tongue of many modern languages, but is also foundational and continues to be used in science, law, and music. We learn the language rigorously, and students learn to "decode" in both Latin and English. This course focuses on ancient life in Pompeii. It is extremely useful for struggling readers of English and second language learners. It is a joyful place to enrich your vocabulary, learn grammar in a different way, and to strengthen your writing skills.
