Being able to translate things is the most fun part of Latin, and this year-long introduction to the Latin language emphasizes that aspect, using weekly translations as a jumping off point for building Latin vocabulary and developing an understanding of the basics of Latin grammar. We’ll also spend a little time exploring the mythology, history, and culture of ancient Rome — mostly because it’s too much fun to skip.
