Course Description
Why should someone study Latin? Isn’t it a dead language? No! It is very much alive, and there are many benefits to having your child study Latin. Learning Latin improves a student's cognitive skills like problem-solving and critical thinking. It will help your child expand their English vocabulary and understand unfamiliar English words based on their Latin roots. Latin is precise and structured, enhancing your child's grasp of language and improving writing skills.  Students who study Latin typically have an easier time learning other languages in the future. And finally, Latin provides a gateway to understanding ancient history and science terminology.
In Prima Latina, students will learn:
Basic Latin alphabet and pronunciation of vowel and consonant sounds
How to pronounce, spell, and translate approximately 125 Latin words
25 practical Latin expressions and 4 Latin prayers
How to count in Latin from 1-10
Understand the concept of English Derivatives
Basic parts of speech, including verbs, nouns, prepositions, pronouns, adjectives, etc.
Be introduced to conjugating verbs and declining nouns.
Memorize 1st declension noun endings and 1st conjugation verb endings.

Prima Latina's gentle approach will inspire a love of Latin in your children and provide a foundation that proves helpful in many areas of study. After Prima Latina, students will move on to Latina Cristiana next year if they want to continue their Latin studies.
