Introduction by Jonathan Roberts
Included Core Material
- St. Andy’s Latin Companion, by Timothy Griffith
/ month for 6 months
Latin I is designed to bring new students to a reading knowledge of Latin. Students will build their skill in reading Latin primarily using the Latin Bible and Lingua Latina and will master 1,000 of the most common Latin terms using Picta Dicta. Using St. Andy’s Latin Companion students will be introduced to Latin grammar and vocabulary which they will solidify with reading and composition exercises. This course makes equal use of both grammatical explanation and examples, so as to be effective for a wide range of students (from those who are highly mathematical to those who prefer to learn by imitation). New vocabulary and grammar are introduced through period-appropriate illustrations; Biblical passages are lightly adapted so as to correspond to the student’s current knowledge of grammar.
