Students in this class will continue to read and study a novel written entirely in Latin. Students will enjoy reading about the antics and adventures of a Roman family in the 2nd century A.D. while they learn an impressive amount of vocabulary and grammar through a natural language-learning approach.
Students will also read texts from sacred Scripture and learn about culture, history, technology, and other facets of Roman life. We will complete the second half of Hans Orberg’s Lingua Latina: Per Se Illustrata: Familia Romana book, which includes primary sources in later chapters that allow students to read and study the writings of ancient authors in their original language. This course uses the same texts as Latin 1.
This course is intended to follow Latin 1; at least one year of high-school level Latin is a prerequisite. This course is taught at the equivalent of a traditional honors-level class.
Families purchase the following required supplies. Audio files to accompany the text will be available via Google Classroom; students will be invited to join Google Classroom upon the start of classes in order to listen to the audio files independently during the week.
