Minimus Latin - pt 2


with Rebecca Paten

Join us for this lively introduction to the Latin language and the culture of Roman Britian.  Students will learn basic grammar and Latin vocabulary through stories featuring a real family who lived in Roman times.  Minimus the mouse guides students through learning about first and second declension nouns and present tense verbs through short comics and a variety of activities.

Students will need to purchase a copy of the Minimus Starting out in Latin Pupil Book by Barbara Bell (used copies can be purchased on Amazon).  They will have some homework each week from the text.

Parents are encouraged to participate, especially if they haven't studied Latin themselves.
