Latin I and II for Middle and High School

Update: This live course has concluded and is available now as a recorded course through our Unlimited Access! Service. This is a great way to learn at your own pace when your schedule allows. To subscribe or learn more: Catholic Homeschooling

Latin I Part Two and Latin II Part Two are both open to all students who are wishing to deepen their knowledge of the Latin language. Please click on the course title to learn more or to register for the upcoming semester.

Latin Part One is not a prerequisite, but its equivalent is expected.

For Latin I, students should have a good command of present tense verbs in the third person (e.g. laborat, narrat, and orat) and a decent understanding of the 1st and 2nd Noun Declensions.

For Latin II, students should have a good command of both the active and passive verbs as well as a good understanding of all 5 declensions.

Both courses are homework intensive with a translation and composition each week as well as weekly Latin passages to memorize and grammar exercises and quizzes to complete.

We use Benjamin D'ooge's Latin for Beginners (available for FREE online) to help inform our investigations of ancient, medieval, and modern Latin. Looking at the original texts, we are able to see how Latin is really written, and at the same time, our grammar book helps make sense of what we are seeing, making Latin learning easier and easier rather than the other way around!
