Introductory Latin in HSSP Summer 2009 (Jul. 12, 2009)
Ever wanted to give orders like Julius Caesar or declaim like Cicero? Then learn Latin, the language of the ancient Romans! In this course for beginners, we will cover most of the basics of Latin grammar, including all the declensions and regular verb conjugations. Each class, we will read simplified and original texts (in Latin, of course!) about entertaining and important events in Roman history. Depending on student interest, other activities might include reading excerpts from Harry Potter in Latin, watching an episode of Asterix along with our discussion of Julius Caesar’s Gallic Wars, or reading Latin texts about mythology. Prerequsite: Motivation! Latin isn’t as easy to learn as commonly taught modern languages like Spanish or French, so it will require a bit more effort. I promise to make it fun, though! Some very light homework will be assigned.
