You are probably thinking, "What am I doing in Latin?" I'd like to alleviate some of your fears. This class will help you develop your English skills and help make you a better communicator. You will learn how to read for understanding and to think critically. Latin can make you more marketable if you are interested in going to a 4-year college or university (especially with three and four years of study). Through diligent study of the language, you can perform well on standardized tests (SAT, ACT) and you will have the opportunity to take the Advanced Placement Test to earn college credit. In addition to the language, you will also learn about the history, philosophy, culture, art, theater, etc. of the ancient Romans. I look forward to taking you on this journey.
