INTRODUCTION TO LATIN

Christopher Holmes

ACADEMICS | WEEK FOUR

Description

Interested in learning a foreign language? Why not try Latin, a language that for over two thousand years has had the most profound influence over all of Western education? Learning it can have many benefits. For example, you can increase your knowledge of English vocabulary significantly since approximately 50% of all English words are derived from it. In this course you will be introduced to basic Latin grammar and vocabulary. Time also will be given to learning Latin that is “alive” in current American culture (e.g. e pluribus unum). The purpose of this class is to give students a basic knowledge of Latin while having some fun.
