In Latin I, students learn the basics of Latin vocabulary and grammar including nouns, pronouns, adjectives, and verbs of the indicative and imperative moods by studying Wheelock's Latin text, Chapters 1-22. Students develop translation skills by studying ancient passages by Latin authors. Using Wheelock's Latin, a time-tested text, sharpens students' intellects and prepares them to read classical and ecclesiastical Latin literature while developing their language and reasoning skills, not to mention its proven benefit on SAT scores. Homework will average 2 - 3 hours per week.
Minimum age of 12 on the first day of class. Successful completion of VSA Latin Transition I or II or comparable course in the previous 24 months is strongly encouraged.
